The Shropshire Youth Support Trust (SYST) is a charity that specialises in Social Inclusion, by maximising Employability and Self-Employment, with an expertise in supporting people with multiple and complex needs. Our Mission is to empower people to achieve their dreams, lead fulfilling lives and kick start their journey towards personal and financial independence. We support and encourage people to make life-changing choices enabling them to secure sustainable employment or self-employment.
 
Amongst many of these accomplishments are the partnerships that have been built up with SYST over the last five years. The Shropshire Youth Support Trust has been fortunate to work with the likes of Job Centres, UnLtd, Marches Care Ltd, Morris & Company Ltd, The National Lottery Community Fund and many others. 
 
SYST has a proven track record of successfully delivering a range of support services to meet a social need within our community - holistically designed to help economically inactive and excluded people. We provide Employability & Enterprise provision including; Coaching, mentoring, a space for people to work in, funding, incubation units and much more.
 
Long-term, the charity will support regeneration in the area by developing local enterprise and creating employment opportunities in the surrounding community. 
 
We are currently in a pandemic that has increased numbers in unemployment within the Shropshire area. Figures from March 2020 indicate a 155% in benefit claims from young people alone. With the job market crashing, the furlough scheme extended to April 2021 and increasing numbers of unemployed people looking for work, our services are more instrumental than ever before. 
 
We offer our Covid-19 Support programme, which offers workshops, bootcamps and clinics focused on helping people set up their own enterprise or gain employability skills to help them stand out in the current climate. These workshops are delivered by industry experienced, mentors to ensure that you are equipped with the necessary skills and resilience needed to secure that desired job or to start your own business.

“I attended the marketing strategy workshop online.  There were only a few of us on the workshop so we were able to discuss our own businesses in detail and get pointed in the right direction.  The tutor was really encouraging and helpful”
Denise - Swim With Style


“SYST has helped us realise our zero waste package free shop. They have put is in touch with Buy from Shropshire, who in turn helped us secure and start up in our first position in the centre of Shrewsbury, at the Darwin Shopping Centre. This has allowed us to minimize our initial costings, saving on solicitor costs and also benefitting off a lower initial rent, allowing us to re-invest our earnings back into the shop and building something quite special. Also through SYST we have had help from a qualified solicitor, and advice and support from passionate and local experts/businesses.”
Lillie & Sam - GREEN OPTIONS


“I found SYST when I was just struggling to keep on the right path with starting up and the team have helped me to focus hugely. With their help on the business plan template he has secured an investor to provide required start-up capital. The space SYST can offer it’s businesses have provided us with an affordable HQ and the contacts that the team has have provided us with links into business opportunities. I could not have done it without them! I look forward to working with them continuing into the future!”
