About us

Livability Maesbury Metals is a social enterprise that supports people to create and sell bespoke products to the local community in Oswestry.

The Maesbury Metals team design and produce metal planters, ornamental garden furniture and other bespoke decorative items. They also produce a variety of wooden items including storage solutions made from recycled pallets. Attendees gain skills in metalwork and woodwork from experienced support staff. The workshop is situated on the Maesbury Road Industrial Estate.

The focus is to support people to learn new skills, make connections, grow wellbeing and build new pathways to employment. The service has a particular understanding of disability and mental health.

This day service is for adults who would like to learn a new skill, providing a place for people to get work experience and feel part of the community – all alongside creating sellable products.

People can join in on a short or long term basis, depending on what they would like to get out of their time.

For some attendees this is learning woodwork skills in the shop, for some it’s acquiring technical expertise around welding in the workshop, to feel ready to apply for certificates that gain access to the work place.

Referrals into the service are by social services at Shropshire Council.

Our approach

Our home is guided by Livability’s core values. We strive to be open, enabling, inclusive and courageous in all that we do.

Co-production is woven throughout our service provision. Co-produced care plans and service delivery are central to our approach.

Person centred, flexible approach

Together, with the people we support, Livability puts the person at the centre of their care planning. We help individuals work out what their care needs are, choose the support they want and have control over their life. We know that everyone’s needs and aspirations are different – that all sorts of things add up to living well.

Community connections that grow health and wellbeing

We work to create connections that help people thrive. Research shows that personal health and wellbeing does better when people enjoy supportive networks. We support the people that use our services to follow their interests, get involved with activities in their community and pursue the life they want to lead.

Valuing people and working with strengths

We help people by looking at what they have, rather than what they lack. This approach helps people make use of their existing skills, knowledge and relationships.

Supporting spirituality

Livability has a broad and inclusive Christian ethos. We support people of all faiths and none. We believe in the equality and unique value of every person, supporting them to discover and fulfil their potential.

A culture of continuous improvement

Livability strives to deliver services of the highest quality and constantly seek to improve through listening, reflection, learning and action.
