Hello and welcome to Busy Parents Network website. Busy Parents Network is a community social enterprise set up with the specific intention of bringing families together in the local community for fun, education, companionship and friendship. We are interested in building community cohesion, empowering families to make the communities they live in better places to be and creating social change.
We achieve this in 2 main ways:
1. We host fabulous "Family Festival" events in partnership with our Busy Parent Network Business Associates & Creative Partners. These events happen regularly and we chose a different theme for each event. They are packed full of family fun. Come and enjoy children's workshops & entertainment, a bouncy castle & face-painting, lots of lovely stalls and delicious refreshments. A Busy Parents Network Family Festival is the place to meet up with friends and family and a great chance to get to know more people in the South Birmingham community.
In the last few months, we have organised and hosted the Bournville Children’s Book Festival (open to families across South Birmingham), a Scarecrow Festival, a Hands on History day and the music and activities provision for the under 11’s at the popular music festival in Cotteridge Park, CoCoMAD.
2. We publish our Busy Parents Directory for busy families to use as their guide to what is happening locally in the South Birmingham area. From our "Community Listings" pages to our "Busy Parents Essential A to Z Guide to..." we feature a wide-range of interesting articles and information for parents and grandparents with younger aged children. It is THE inside track to find out what is happening in our local area and it’s free too.
Whether you are parents to be, brand new parents, are new to the area, a grandparent, a long time busy parent or a childminder we look forward to meeting you and being of service to you.

What is a social enterprise?
Busy Parents Network is a Community Interest Company (C.I.C. for short). This means that we are a values led organisation set up for social purposes rather than the pursuit of profit. We reinvest any surpluses back into the local community to help us achieve our aims of actively building a better, more cohesive community for all local families. Our company number is 08124159.
