The organisers of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games have announced they are searching for volunteer community representatives to join the event’s Legacy and Benefits (LAB) Committee.

According to organisers, the purpose of the cross-partner LAB group is to ensure that Birmingham and the West Midlands takes advantage of the Games and creates a lasting legacy for the region.

Those who join the group will be involved with creating the legacy strategy for the Games, as well as overseeing the delivery of a programme of benefits for the region, such as culture, tourist, trade and investment, sustainability, and wellbeing.

John Crabtree OBE, Chairman of Birmingham 2022, who also chairs the LAB Committee said:  “Over the next few years the work of the Legacy and Benefits Committee is going to be crucial and we’re looking for dynamic volunteers to join us to help improve the region. 

"We need individuals who are innovative, commercially astute and can match our dedication to delivering the most sustainable, inclusive, and accessible Commonwealth Games to date.

Organisers say that the LAB Committee volunteers will promote the mission for Birmingham 2022, which includes ensuring that the Games, as a cultural event, will bring people together as well as improving the health and wellbeing of citizens in the region.
