Birmingham's unsung heroes: The Brummies who made a real difference in 2023

We've highlighted the Brummies that deserve a special mention for their selfless work in 2023

There are many people in Birmingham that have achieved great things or committed acts of bravery or self-sacrifice, yet they are not always recognised for their achievements.

Yes, we often idolise celebrities and their stories, but when it comes to truly inspirational figures, there are people from all different walks of life who have made a positive difference to people's lives in Birmingham over the last year.

There are many good deeds which don’t get the recognition they deserve, and that’s why we want to shine a light on those who have really made a difference and gone beyond over the last 12 months.

It's important that unsung heroes are recognised and get the credit they deserve, so we've decided to take a look at the Brummies who deserve a special mention for their selfless work and for dedicating parts of ther lives to helping others this year.

So, here are ten people and groups that we think deserve a special mention.
