Shaw Trust

At Shaw Trust we believe everyone has the right to live a decent and dignified life with an opportunity for rewarding work. We are a social purpose organisation challenging inequality and breaking down barriers to enable social mobility.

We put people at the centre, knowing the right support at the right time can make a huge difference to an individual’s life. We empower people from child to career through our services embracing employability, education, learning and skills, children’s services and health and wellbeing support. Our co-created services include large scale employability programmes, specialist services for communities, residential care for children, targeted support for young people, on-the-job learning and training and individual guidance and support.

We believe in sharing our expertise to create sustainable community legacies and work with more than 200 like-minded organisations growing networks of talent, experience and potential.
