The Little Sisters of the Poor, Harborne, Birmingham.

In January 1864 the Little Sisters of the Poor were established in Birmingham City Centre. They maintained a home for the aged poor in “The Crescent”, just off Broad Street, where the ICC now stands. Ten years later in 1874 they moved to St. Joseph’s Home, Queens Park Road, Harborne, at the side of Queens Park.


St Joseph’s is a registered home for the aged providing nursing and residential care for up to 38 residents over the age of 65. In addition there are twelve flats for independent living, whose occupants are able to access services from the home, such as dining and laundry.


St. Joseph’s is financed by donations, private residents fees, and contributions from the Local Authority, via the fees of qualifying residents. Annual Inspection by the CSCI (Commission for Social Care Inspection) sees the home score consistently high marks for all aspects of care and nursing provision, for which they receive the maximum 3-star (Excellent) rating in these CSCI assessments.

The Little Sisters of the Poor, 71 Queens Park Road, Harborne, Birmingham, B32 2LB.
