Shrewsbury Business Chamber is a supporter of local charities in the community. Whilst we are not in a position to provide financial support to each and every organisation that approaches us for funding, below are links to their websites for more information.
Shropshire RCC are a delivery partner in the newly formed Marches Community-led Housing Hub (MCLH) and we are delighted to invite you to its ONLINE LAUNCH where the diverse and vast guidance and support the hub can offer throughout Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Herefordshire will be revealed.
We are very keen to share with you what we at the hub can do to help, whatever stage of the process you are at, but the ongoing social distancing advice means that we are unable to get lots of people together in person. So we have organised a number of zoom sessions during the week commencing 15th June. We are running the same session on three different days and times so hopefully you will be free to join us at one (or some!) of the events. We will have a number of very knowledgeable people ‘in the room’, sharing some of their experiences and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions and answers and networking.
We believe that local people are best placed to build homes which really work for that community, creating thriving places to live, work and play. It is the hub’s mission to help you access information, funding and guidance around Community-led Housing so you can confidently navigate through the process from initial idea, establishing a group, finding a site, planning policy, engagement, working with key partners through to the build and moving in phases. The hub is a not for profit organisation which draws on the experience and expertise of people who have been working with communities throughout Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Herefordshire for many years.
All advisers have undertaken the Community-Led Homes Accredited Housing Enabler training and are connected nationally through a Network of Hubs, all with the same mission; to help find solutions around housing challenges right in the community they arise in.
