Community groups and members of voluntary organisations met in Birmingham to discuss what they can do to keep some of Birmingham's services running.
The meeting was held shortly after an announcement that up to 1,000 more jobs could be cut at Birmingham City Council.
The Labour-run authority said it needed to find £840m savings by the 2017-18 financial year.
Council leader Sir Albert Bore said almost all departments would be affected and services would be hit.
