Become a Patron

Become a Patron and help us keep this internationally significant historic swimming pool open, and at the heart of our community. We are run by the community, for the community so we have decided to create a patron scheme for those of you who can afford to offer a bit of financial help.

Running a historic swimming pool is expensive! Your support will guarantee we can #keepswimming at Moseley Road Baths, allowing us to offer not just the benefits of swimming to local people, but enabling us to offer local people the chance to volunteer and participate in the ongoing regeneration of the site, an investment in their future and that of Balsall Heath’s.

You can become a Patron by pledging a minimum annual gift of £25, or just over £2 per month, for a fixed or open period. By supporting us in this way, you will help provide guaranteed funds that allow us to plan our work with greater confidence and effectiveness.  

How your support will make a difference?

In April 2018 Moseley Road Baths was taken over by a charity which was set-up in 2017 to keep the swimming pool open. We have had an amazing first year which included:

  • Increasing pool time for public swimming by 40%
  • Training 40 volunteers including as lifeguards and swim teachers
  • Working with community groups such as Moseley Shoals, ASIRT and Saheli. 
  • The establishment of the very popular ‘Carpe Aqua’ sessions
  • Hosting free community pool parties
  • Women and Theatre creating a unique piece of theatre in and about the pool

Your donation will help meet our vision by:

  • Increasing available public swimming time for local residents.
  • Offering more volunteer and skills development opportunities for local people.
  • Working with partners including National Trust to safeguard the long term future of the building.

Patron levels

We are offering 4 levels of donation and these can be purchased for yourself or as a gift. If you purchase a gift membership we will give you a voucher and the recipient can contact us with their details. We can also offer corporate patron packages, contact us if you’re interested in finding out more.
