The Chamberlain Highbury Trust was established as an independent charitable trust in 2016 to preserve and restore the house and grounds and give them a sustainable future. Our aspiration is to make Highbury full accessible to everyone and regain its rightful place in Birmingham’s historical and cultural landscape. Highbury is situated in Moseley and Kings Heath Ward and borders Sparkbrook, one of the most deprived wards in the city with high levels of deprivation.
Nationally, with only 23% of board members being women and 5% from black and ethnic minority backgrounds, developing socially diverse leadership is a priority. Birmingham is one of the youngest cities in the UK with over 40% of its population under the age of 25 years.
Most importantly, we want Highbury to engage with young people from all backgrounds and encourage them to take inspiration from the Chamberlain family heritage. We want them to critically reflect upon leadership in all its forms and to take their place in the future of the region and country.
