Severnside Housing

Severnside Housing is a member of the Housing Plus Group and one of Shropshire’s largest social landlords owning more than 5,500 properties in Shrewsbury and the surrounding areas. A not-for-profit company, we invest in our neighbourhoods and work closely with our residents, partners and the wider-community to deliver our vision of ‘Excellent Homes in thriving communities’.

Severnside will focus support on key groups who face individual barriers to finding suitable employment, through regular, local job clubs, drop-ins and training sessions. Support will also be delivered in our local and rural community hubs, ensuring that people who cannot visit our weekly sessions can access our services. Where appropriate, home visits offering one-to-one support are available to help people achieve their full potential.

Job Clubs/Drop-ins:

  • Every Tuesday, 11am – 1pm, at the Digital Den, Maesbrook Road, Meole Brace, Shrewsbury, SY3 9NL
  • Every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday, 10.30am – 12.30pm at Castlefields Digital Den, 69 Park Road, Castlefields, Shrewsbury, SY1 2LE

  • Training Sessions – Every Monday and Friday, 2pm – 4pm at Castlefields Digital Den, 69 Park Road, Castlefields, Shrewsbury, SY1 2LE

Help during Jobs Clubs and Drop-ins will include assistance to get online, CV writing, interview techniques, job searching and applying for positions online. City & Guilds Online Basics and Job Workshops are delivered through our weekly training sessions. Signposting is available to help people boost their skills in key areas including numeracy, literacy, IT and self-confidence, along with any specific individual training needs identified.

Referrals can be made to our long-standing partners, including the Prince’s Trust, Job Change and County Training, who will be on-hand to help people gain accredited qualifications. Participants can also be referred to Severnside’s established, in-house Learning Programme which is jam-packed full of short courses and training events, covering a diverse range of subjects.
