About Shaw Trust

Shaw Trust is a charity helping to transform the lives of young people and adults across the UK and internationally.

Our specialist services help people gain an education, enter work, develop their career, improve their wellbeing or rebuild their lives. As a charity we add value to every service we deliver by investing back into the people and communities we support.

Shaw Trust is one of the largest 25 charities in the UK. Comprising Shaw Trust, Prospects, Ixion and Shaw Education Trust, we use our 75 years’ combined experience to support people to develop their potential. By joining together we are working to reach one goal: to help transform the lives of one million young people and adults each year by 2022.

Our 3,500 staff and 1,000 volunteers provide joined-up services for government, local authorities, combined authorities, employers, stakeholders – including the Department for Work and Pensions, Education and Skills Funding Agency, clinical commissioning groups and NHS Trusts – and individuals. Our work focuses on seven business areas:

  • Employability
  • Learning and skills
  • Justice
  • Children’s services
  • Education
  • Charitable services and enterprise
  • Community health and wellbeing
