The Centre for the New Midlands CIC is an independent, not-for-profit think tank focussed on the creation and sharing of new ideas to build a ‘better’ West Midlands.

We work with residents and organisations to discover new solutions to help solve the region’s biggest social and economic challenges and are the place where people come to ‘debate, shape and create’ a better region.

We are non-partisan; dedicated to the generation of new ideas thanks to evidence-based research and we are fully committed to making the Midlands a ‘better’ place to live, work, study, invest and play in.

We do hope that you enjoy learning more about what we hope to achieve through our work and would love to have you on board through our ‘Reimagining the Region‘ network.
