Mission Statement

SHINE@NechellsPOD will provide a varied range of activities and services to improve life chances, develop skills and offer support and guidance.  Residents of Nechells will be Supported, Helped, Inspired, Nurtured, and Empowered to become active citizens and beacons of light and hope in their community.  SHINE@NechellsPOD will work with other statutory and civil society organisations to ensure its support fits within a cohesive and targeted provision across the area.



We have a volunteer Board of Trustees, which sets strategy and supports the staff team in ensuring the organisation fulfills its Mission.


History & Development

Through consultation with the community, statutory and voluntary partners it was decided that to ensure sustainability for Nechells POD, and the valuable support it offers to the community, a proposal should be put together to create an affiliated charity.  On 5th June 2015 SHINE@NechellsPOD was registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) with The Charity Commission.

The services, support and activities offered through SHINE@NechellsPOD aim to bring about benefits such as the increased ability to manage debts, support in finding work, better numeracy and literacy skills, better parenting skills, improved social lives for all ages, improved health and well-being, increased self-esteem, improved aspirations, reduction in crime and anti-social behaviour, greater community cohesion and much more.


We are looking forward to working with the Nechells community in many new and exciting ways in the future, so watch this space!
