Edge and Josh
23 May 2018

The best part of my job is empowering people to reach their full potential.  It’s been a real privilege to see Josh grow in self-confidence and become focused on his career goals. I started supporting Josh during the Prince’s Trust employability skills week, when Severnside run CV writing and finding employment workshops, along with delivering mock-interviews.

Severnside work in partnership with the Prince’s Trust to help young people in our communities get their lives back on track. I’ve recently worked alongside Stacey and it's been great being part of her life-changing journey.  Watching her flourish and become a calm and confident young lady makes me feel very proud to be part of such a great team.

It’s National Apprenticeship Week and we are delighted to celebrate this showcase for vocational training, particularly in Property Plus, where apprentices now make up 12 percent of our workforce.

Apprentices work within electrical, home improvement, facilities management and administrative functions in Property Plus, with opportunities now available for ambitious people wanting to become plumbers, electricians, carpenters and heating engineers.

Curlew drone footage
29 January 2018

We've been hoping to get local video production company 7video's drone into the sky for a few weeks now but bad weather kept us back. Now that the site at Curlew Meadows is complete we thought it would be a great time to get the drone in the air to see it at its best.

Everyone at Severn Homes is very proud of the development and it is fantastic to see each new homeowner move in.

We asked local video production company 7video to explain how they put together our fantastic #BuildingOurFutureHPG film.

Last spring, we were tasked with creating a video that represented everything Housing Plus Group are as an organisation and everything they aim to be in the future.

We have been in this situation plenty of times before, and having worked with a number of housing associations from all across England and Wales, this was something we were very confident we could achieve.

Care Plus in the snow
15 December 2017

Black forest gateau and a spade were all Jenna Dubil and Amy Bardi needed to get them through the snow to provide care in some of the most isolated communities.

Care Plus team leader Jenna said: “The snow was coming down hard but we were determined to get out. But we were not the only ones making a difference. During Saturday and Sunday, Care Plus completed 772 calls – an incredible effort by everyone involved. Calls included helping people get out of bed, helping others have showers, administering medication and providing regular meals and drinks.

Danielle and Eli
23 November 2017

It is said that each of us is just a few steps away from homelessness. Danielle Harrison certainly didn’t expect to find herself in that position with a new baby, on Christmas Eve.

“I was poorly after having Eli and wasn’t able to work. Things were difficult and then my marriage broke down. On Christmas Eve, Eli and I were homeless. I had no idea what to do. I searched for emergency accommodation on Google.”
