About The Heart Centre

The HeArt Centre is a local voluntary run non-profit community project started in 2003.  Over time it has grown to become an education & arts centre serving a diverse and vibrant community.  The HeArt Centre aims to provide a stimulating environment to educate, bring people of different cultures & faiths together and to be a place of fun, learning and exchange for all.  It has created a place of peaceful retreat from the stresses of daily life.  Through its range of extensive activities the centre hopes to address & alleviate the needs and concerns of all who visit and participate. 

We all share an element of social responsibility and The HeArt Centre has worked tirelessly to improve conditions in a largely deprived area of Birmingham.  Many of our events & initiatives are free to access for all. 

We run on a solely voluntary basis and rely completely on the generosity and charity of others.
