About Us

 

Our Vision

 

Everyone appreciates the cultural diversity of today's Birmingham population. This diversity also bears the inequalities within communities due to reasons beyond its remits. Bangladeshi and other Minority Ethnic Communities in Aston, Lozells Handsworth and others parts of Birmingham City Council have unfortunately fallen into the shallow end of opportunity pool. Our vision is to help people to reach maximum potential of their life so that they can contribute fullest to the community and bring equalities within the whole community.


 

To achieve our vision we have set out the followings:

 

  • To provide advice, information and advocacy support to local people affected by poverty and deprivation and to help them improve their quality of life.
  • To provide educational support to underachieving children and young people so that they can perform better at their mainstream school.
  • To provide initiatives that tackles the physical and mental health of people.
  • To promote community cohesion that will help them facilitate social integration, social and religious tolerance and bring harmony amongst all sections of the community.
  • To provide safe environment that will encourage participation, engagement and volunteering from people of all different walks of life.

Getting Started

It's easy to get started creating your website. Knowing some of the basics will help.

What is a Content Management System?

A content management system is software that allows you to create and manage webpages easily by separating the creation of your content from the mechanics required to present it on the web.

In this site, the content is stored in a database. The look and feel are created by a template. The Joomla! software brings together the template and the content to create web pages.

Site and Administrator

Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "This Site" menu or by adding /administrator to the end of you domain name.

Log in to the administrator using the username and password created during the installation of Joomla.

Logging in

To login to the front end of your site use the login form or the login menu link on the "This Site" menu. Use the user name and password that were created as part of the installation process. Once logged-in you will be able to create and edit articles.

In managing your site, you will be able to create content that only logged-in users are able to see.

Creating an article

Once you are logged-in, a new menu will be visible. To create a new article, click on the "submit article" link on that menu.

The new article interface gives you a lot of options, but all you need to do is add a title and put something in the content area. To make it easy to find, set the state to published and put it in the Joomla category.

You can edit an existing article by clicking on the edit icon (this only displays to users who have the right to edit).

Learn more

There is much more to learn about how to use Joomla! to create the web site you envision. You can learn much more at the Joomla! documentation site and on the Joomla! forums.
