Shabana Mahmood MP recently visited The POD in the Nechells ward of her Birmingham, Ladywood constituency.
Whilst there, Shabana held a drop in session to hear local residents’ issues and met some of the people who regularly use The POD’s wide range of services. The POD works together with local schools, voluntary organisations and local partners to provide advice, information and guidance, diversionary activities, adult and family learning. They provide adult education classes, financial surgeries, drug surgeries, police surgeries as well as clubs and trips for the older residents of the area.
Shabana said, “The POD does admirable work in my constituency and it was a brilliant opportunity for me to gain an insight to what services they provide to local residents. The people I met who use the service were all entirely grateful for The POD and I hope they will be able to continue their excellent work.”
