KingsHeathWeAre - where people with passion make all the difference! Join Us!





At KingsHeathWeAre, we're building the largest Community of Passion for people who want to make a difference and want to create an impact.

To do this, we're giving 'People with Passion' in Kings Heath free digital space so they can take their passion to the next level and make a difference for themselves and for others.

Read on.


Why Kings Heath?

Kings Heath is made up of people who love where they live, who are passionate about their community and who really can be called 'People with Passion'.

They are people who don't just want to make a difference, they are people who really can make a difference. Just imagine what can be achieved if such people are given a digital space where they can take their passion to the next level and connect with others who share that passion.

That's where FreeTimePays comes in.

FreeTimePays

FreeTimePays is an impact focused digital platform and social media channel specifically for people who want to make a difference and help create a positive social and economic impact.

FreeTimePays is the social media of choice for 'People with Passion'.

FreeTimePays is a digital platform that gives people access to a suite of engagement tools.

There are three components to FreeTimePays.

There’s Community Passport; Community Workspace and Community Matchmaker. Operating right across the platform in recognition of the valuable contribution being made by users is FreeTimePays gamification. This takes the form of points and rewards for passions shared.

FreeTimePays is here for people who really want to become involved in their community or with their particular passion and for those people who are really serious about making a difference. It’s our job at FreeTimePays to provide the tools and functionality that helps bring together; those who create the great ideas with those who have the potential to turn an idea into something that really does make a difference.

Community Passport

Passport is a personal space which registered members can make their own. With a passport, members can choose to get involved with their passion and participate in many different ways.

They can view regular content and posts; sort and save this content by type or by passion; they can collect points for giving their views through polls and surveys, attend events or even join a discussion.

With a FreeTimePays Community Passport, members can follow inspiring people and they can learn more about their community and their passion by following regular ‘Did you Know’ features. And the more they decide to do and the more they get involved, the more points they collect and the greater the opportunity to take up offers and win prizes.

Community Workspace

With their unique Community Workspace, FreeTimePays is able help those who are inspired and serious about taking things to the next level. FreeTimePays will give these people their own access rights environment where they can work on their idea or project.

In this digital space they can work alone, or bring in others to share in building evidence, acquiring knowledge and developing plans. This is the ideal space for working on the business; working on the idea; working on the initiative.

A range of facilities and tools can be found in workspace and users can effectively utilise this space for collating documents, photos, videos and web links, for opening up discussion and chat with others, or for running surveys and analysing results.

Community Matchmaker

The whole focus and rationale for FreeTimePays is MAKING A DIFFERENCE. It’s our job at FreeTimePays to provide the tools and functionality that helps bring together those who create the GREAT IDEAS with those who have the potential to turn an IDEA into something that really does MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Matchmaker is where the dreamers can join with the dream makers – with those who are more than happy to put their support, their resources, their connections, and their wealth of experience behind the idea and behind the passionate people responsible for coming up with the idea.

These are the community drivers, the investors, the philanthropists, the funders of great initiatives, the Lottery, and those from local government and the public sector who are responsible for the provision of public services.

These are the people and the organisations who are in positions of making things happen for those who are passionate and inspired to want to make a difference.

KingsHeathWeAre is digitally connected to BirminghamWeAre and benefits from the huge following already created by this Community.

Let's tell you what has been happening at BirminghamWeAre.

BirminghamWeAre

In 2015, BirminghamWeAre set up an account on twitter to keep the people of Birmingham updated on a new impact focused digital space and portal being built (at that time) by FreeTimePays for people who are passionate about making a difference and creating a positive impact.

In just a couple of years, the reach of, and interest in, BirminghamWeAre has grown significantly. For example, over 0.7 million impressions is now typically achieved every month by BirminghamWeAre through social media.

As well as a shared passion for Birmingham, many followers of BirminghamWeAre are also keen to make a difference, whether for themselves, through their jobs or for others in their community. We refer to these people as People with Passion.

Due to the significant passion that exists in Birmingham, and as a way of helping people take their passions to the next level, BirminghamWeAre.com was established as the first Community of Passion by FreeTimePays in 2017.

BirminghamWeAre.com is a digital 'shout out' space for people to promote their passion and connect with people who share that passion. 

But let's get back to our plans for KingsHeathWeAre

KingsHeathWeAre

KingsHeathWeAre.com will grow as a shared space for the many individuals, communities and businesses that will want to connect and share in the passion that is Kings Heath.

Their work, their ideas and their proposals can be pulled together in the one collaborative space giving them access to a huge resource bank for sharing images, documents and web links. 

In this space people can chat in a secure environment if they wish, they can set up and promote events or they can communicate with any of the FreeTimePays Communities through creating and submitting posts. 

This space will provide unlimited access to the latest engagement tools for conducting surveys, polls, online group discussions and conversations

We will also be announcing details of Passion Points, a FreeTimePays form of gamification that recognises and rewards people who get involved and help make the difference.

We would be delighted to tell you more.

Contact Jonathan Bostock at jonathan.bostock@freetimepays.com or connect HERE with FreeTimePays for more information on sharing your passion for Kings Heath.

Kings Heath Park is centered on the Park House which was built in 1832 for the MP, William Congreve Russell. In 1880, it was bought by John Cartland (ancestor of the author Barbara Cartland, lover of pinkness and author of  romantic novels!).

The land was sold to the council and opened as a public park in 1908. The building houses council offices and the Cartland Tea Rooms.

Plants are available for sale in the nursery at Kings Heath Park.

Let's take a look at the Park though the seasons :
