The Uffculme Centre was built in 1891 as a home to Richard Cadbury and his family until 1906.
The house and grounds were then used for the entertainment of adult school members and social workers for 7 years. In 1914 the house provided shelter for refugees from Belgium. From 1916 to 1929 the house formed part of a hospital for disabled ex-service men. During the war, it was staffed by members of the Friends Ambulance Unit.
The centre was erected by the Highbury Trustees to record the generous gift on 2nd December 1916, by Mr and Mrs Cadbury of the house and 36 acres of land to Birmingham City Council for the general benefit of its citizens.
Following an extensive refurbishment the Uffculme Centre is now a training and conference centre for Birmingham and Solihull NHS Foundation Trust, we are also licenced by Birmingham City Council to conduct civil ceremonies and other functions. All income generated is put back into our NHS trust therefore hiring the Uffculme Centre is contributing to our trust values of supporting mental health service users living in Birmingham and Solihull.
During Uffculme's restoration much of its original character and period features have been retained, which makes it the perfect venue for any event or occasion.
