• BOSF is a volunteer network organisation, set up at the end of 2004, that brings together all the community groups in Birmingham with an interest in green open spaces.

    Our main focus is supporting the volunteers who add value to the city’s open spaces.

    Currently there are more than 130 member groups – some are large and organised others are 2 people & a dog. There are areas of the city less well represented than others and we need your help to make sure that all of the city can benefit from what a friends group can offer.

    A study undertaken when BOSF was established demonstrated that an open space with a friends group benefited from an average of £35k a year additional funding and volunteer hours equivalent to 1.5 additional staff. Read more.
