About the Beeches
Dating back to the 1890s, the Beeches has been used for many different purposes. Built by George Cadbury it was first a respite centre for Salvation Army officers. Later it became a holiday home for children from inner-city slums. After this, it was used as a residential educational establishment for single women before being transformed again when Cadbury’s used the site as an employee training facility. Up until March 2020, the Beeches was a hotel and conference centre.
BVT and Spring partnership
BVT have been successfully working with Spring Housing in Bournville since 2019 when the charity took management of a former BVT care home. The service successfully provides accommodation to those at risk of homelessness, helping to transform people’s lives for the better.
