Make your voice heard ahead of Commonwealth Games


share close

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games (28 July to 8 August) is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase the West Midlands globally. The most dedicated, highly trained, and determined athletes from across 71 nations will participate in a meaningful celebration of sport, competition and community.

With only 18 months to go, the Commonwealth Games is moving another step closer. Solihull Council is inviting residents, businesses, schools and organisations across the Borough to start sharing their ideas, priorities and expectations for the Games to help with preparations.  

The survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.  There are two versions, one specifically for children and young people and one for all residents and stakeholders living and working in the Borough.  The survey will close at noon on 17 February, so please participate and share before then.

The responses received will help inform the council’s planning and investment over 2021 and 2022 – particularly ensuring that the opportunities the Games creates are relevant and accessible to everyone.

Solihull Council is one of the host authorities, with six events (Badminton, Weightlifting & Para Powerlifting, Boxing, Table Tennis, and Netball) taking place at the NEC.

In addition to the survey, we can also arrange to speak to groups and meetings to talk about the Games and collect people’s ideas, comments, and contributions.  If you have a meeting taking place during February, or would like to arrange one for your group to talk about the Games, then please get in touch with Solihull Council to arrange for a council representative to attend and participate.
