Help endangered wildlife locally – join our Swift Champions


Every spring, Swifts return to our towns and cities after flying thousands of miles from Africa where they spend the winter. Swifts prefer to build their nests in buildings across our towns and cities, but over time there have become fewer places they can use and their numbers in the UK are down by over half. Urgent action is needed to stop them disappearing from our skies, so we are building a network of volunteer Swift Champions across the West Midlands to raise awareness of and take direct action for Swifts. There are many different ways you can support Swifts. As one of our Swift Champions you can choose to do whichever actions that you are comfortable doing. Options include: -Reporting Swift sightings using our app ‘Swift Mapper’ or doing regular surveys -Building Swift nest boxes -Working to facilitate nesting opportunities at scale through ‘Swift Streets’ -Growing wildlife-friendly plants and encouraging others to do the same -Responding to planning applications to ensure buildings provide for Swifts -Raising awareness of Swifts in your community through walks, talks or workshops If you can spare some time and are interested in making a difference for Swifts in your local community, we’d love to hear from you. Approved expenses reimbursed.

Telephone befrienders urgently needed!

by Sandwell Advocacy

Sandwell Advocacy is a small local charity operating Sandwell Together, a telephone befriending service. Sandwell Together was set up in response to the social isolation and loneliness felt by many of us during the Covid pandemic. Sadly, social isolation and loneliness continue to be an issue for many people and Sandwell Together is committed to continuing to provide this support. Sandwell Together now has a number of people on their waiting list in urgent need of a telephone befriender. Is this something you feel you could do? We are looking for people with kindness, empathy and good listening skills who would like to make a real difference to the lives of others. In return for giving up a small amount of your time each week to make a call from your own home we will offer full training, the opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends and the satisfaction of knowing that you are doing something really worthwhile.
