The New Optimists in its various guises have created several spin-offs:
- Elliott Review Birmingham: Both the Prof’s Report for HMG and ours about our contribution to it were published in September 2014. Our involvement is also recorded here.
- The Birmingham Food Council, incorporated as a CIC in March 2014.
- Growing Birmingham, an information hub set up in April 2013 about horticulture and local food growing in Birmingham — who’s growing what and where. It also hosts a lively committee of people representing various organisations in the city.
