Shaw Trust

Shaw Trust is a national charity that helps people facing disadvantage into work, gain skills and take control of their futures.

Over the past thirty years, the Trust has striven to combine its charitable heart with its commercial brain to provide the very best support to the people it was set up to serve.

Shaw Trust is the largest third sector contractor for Department for Work and Pensions.

We deliver both mainstream (Work Programme) and specialist (Work Choice) employment support schemes across Britain and help over 50,000 people per year. It also helps people gain skills and into work via a wide range of other activities including education and skills contracts, 49 shops and a national volunteering programme as well as health and social enterprise projects.

Shaw Trust is also an Approved Sponsor for Academies, and sponsors a multi-academy trust which focuses on supporting special schools and mainstream schools serving disadvantaged communities.

We believe that everyone has the right to work and we support disabled and disadvantaged people towards employment through either Work Choice or the work programme.

Shaw Trust provides help for employers to manage and support disabled and disadvantaged employees.
