BirminghamWeAre is a Community of Passion that utilises FreeTimePays digital engagement and social media to deliver real change and positive social impact.

BirminghamWeAre delivers a digital space for people who are passionate about Birmingham and want to do whatever they can to help their community.

At BirminghamWeAre, we help connect people where passions are shared; we give people FREE access to their very own digital space where they can promote their passion; and we recognise people for the contributions they make through the allocation of Passion Points. Interested? Connect with us HERE.

The reach of FreeTimePays is huge and is growing with Communities of Passion being rolled out across the UK. 

Companies and organisations keen to support People with Passion play an essential role and we have a range of partnership, sponsorship and advertising packages available.

We can even go as far as to set groups and networks up with their own portal so they can grow their own branded Community of Passion linked to their own website or social media account.

Now let's show you what you get with FreeTimePays. 

FreeTimePays

FreeTimePays is an impact focused digital platform and social media channel specifically for people who want to make a difference and create a positive social and economic impact.

FreeTimePays is the social media of choice for 'People with Passion'.

With FreeTimePays, we help people take their passion to the next level by giving them access to a suite of digital tools and applications.

There are three components to FreeTimePays.

There’s Community Passport, Community Workspace and Community Matchmaker. Operating right across the platform in recognition of the valuable contribution being made by users is FreeTimePays gamification. This takes the form of points and rewards for passions shared.

FreeTimePays is here for people who really want to become involved in their community or with their particular passion and for those people who are really serious about making a difference. It’s our job at FreeTimePays to provide the tools and functionality that helps bring together those who create the great ideas with those who have the potential to turn an idea into something that really does make a difference.

Community Passport

Passport is a personal space which registered members can make their own. With a passport, members can choose to get involved with their passion and participate in many different ways.

They can view regular content and posts; sort and save this content by type or by passion; they can collect points for giving their views through polls and surveys, attend events or even join a discussion.

With a FreeTimePays Community Passport, members can follow inspiring people and they can learn more about their community and their passion by following regular ‘Did you Know’ features. And the more they decide to do and the more they get involved, the more points they collect and the greater the opportunity to take up offers and win prizes.

Community Workspace

With their unique Community Workspace, FreeTimePays is able to help those who are inspired and serious about taking things to the next level. FreeTimePays will give these people their own access rights environment where they can work on their idea or project.

In this digital space they can work alone, or bring in others to share in building evidence, acquiring knowledge and developing plans. This is the ideal space for working on the business; working on the idea; working on the initiative.

A range of facilities and tools can be found in workspace and users can effectively utilise this space for collating documents, photos, videos and web links, for opening up discussion and chat with others, or for running surveys and analysing results.

Community Matchmaker

The whole focus and rationale for FreeTimePays is MAKING A DIFFERENCE. It’s our job at FreeTimePays to provide the tools and functionality that helps bring together those who create the GREAT IDEAS with those who have the potential to turn an IDEA into something that really does MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Matchmaker is where the dreamers can join with the dream makers – with those who are more than happy to put their support, their resources, their connections, and their wealth of experience behind the idea and behind the passionate people responsible for coming up with the idea.

These are the community drivers, the investors, the philanthropists, the funders of great initiatives, the Lottery, and those from local government and the public sector who are responsible for the provision of public services.

These are the people and the organisations who are in positions of making things happen for those who are passionate and inspired to want to make a difference.

For more detail on what is provided by FreeTimePays connect HERE.

BirminghamWeAre

BirminghamWeAre will grow as a shared space for the many individuals, communities and businesses that will want to connect and share in their passion for their community.

Their work, their ideas and their proposals can be pulled together in the one collaborative space giving them access to a huge resource bank for sharing images, documents and web links. 

In this space people can chat in a secure environment if they wish; they can set up and promote events; or they can communicate with any of the FreeTimePays Communities through creating and submitting posts.

We would be delighted to tell you more.

Plans for the regeneration of Martineau Galleries in Birmingham city centre have been released and they show that the exciting times for Birmingham are set to continue.

The Martineau Galleries site plan currently includes The Square Shopping Centre, King’s Parade and Dale End (High Street).

This development will completely transform the Dale End area into a new neighbourhood, creating a vibrant mixed-use destination and a new gateway to the city from the planned Curzon Street station.

Hammerson, which owns and manages Birmingham’s Bullring & Grand Central, have put forward the proposals and the architects behind the masterplan are Glen Howells Architects.

The plans for the 7.5 acre site include up to 1,300 homes, up to 1.4m sq ft of workspace for a range of businesses, a new city centre hotel, new shops, restaurants and cafes, a signature gateway to Birmingham from the proposed Curzon Street terminal, and high-quality public realm, including a new public square and boulevard.

Dav Bansal, director at Glen Howells Architects says:

“As masterplanners, we believe that the plans will unlock and reconnect this important part of the city, expanding its central business district, while also framing some of the local landmarks including the Rotunda. With new animated public spaces and streets, the masterplan builds on the city’s vision to become an exciting new destination for commercial headquarters, central city living and a thriving urban environment for visitors.”

Robin Dobson, Development Director at Hammerson, says:

“We are pleased to share the plans for our first major City Quarters scheme for this strategically important site in the heart of the city. Martineau Galleries will be a new, vibrant neighbourhood in the centre of Birmingham, where we are already a long-term developer, owner and manager of assets, including the Bullring Estate. Hammerson has a strong track record of creating great destinations, not just in Birmingham but across Europe, and we look forward to finalising our masterplan, ahead of submission later this year.”

The public consultation will be run online and at the dedicated Martineau Galleries Consultation Hub, at The Square Shopping Centre, 100 Corporation Street, Birmingham, B4 6SX. The plans and display will be open to the public till Saturday 15th June.

Please follow progress on this planned development here.
