Shrewsbury House is a Youth Club in Everton, Liverpool. Founded in 1903, we are known locally as the Shewsy. The area we serve is one of the most deprived wards in the UK.

Our core business is working with children and young people.  The centre maintains a Christian ethos, whilst respecting other beliefs and cultures, and valuing diversity.   Our motto is ‘People Matter More Than Things’ and this guides our approach to our work. Through informal education, we aim to meet the social, recreational, emotional and spiritual needs of our young people. We do this through the relationships and self-confidence we build and the activity and learning programme we offer. Our vision is to draw out the talent and potential of all our young people so that each one will discover a positive purpose and direction for their life.

We are an open-access, full-time centre and run a full programme of activities each week of the year.

The Shewsy has always been widely recognised as centre of excellence.  This has been achieved by the quality and dedication of its staff and by the support of many individuals in Merseyside and beyond, especially Shrewsbury School.
