Shaw Trust Social Enterprises

Shaw Trust Enterprises

Shaw Trust Enterprises are social enterprises delivering a range of horticultural, wood recycling and manufacturing services across the UK. Our social enterprises also help to create brighter futures in the communities where we work by offering local people a range of work experience and employment opportunities. We currently operate eight social enterprises across the UK.
Our horticulture enterprises sell plants and garden items. We also run garden maintenance services, including sowing, planting, pruning, weeding and lawn maintenance. We provide disabled people and people who are currently not in work with training and employment opportunities through our grounds maintenance projects. Each member of our team is DBS checked and we also carry public liability insurance, ensuring your garden is in safe hands

Wood recycling
We specialise in collecting wood waste across London at a competitive rate. We then grade it, sell it or use it to make small wood items such as shelving and furniture, which we sell in our charity shops.  Our Scadbury Park Tree Centre offers local people currently not in employment with the opportunity to learn new skills and gain non-accredited training which will support them into paid employment. Shaw Trust offers  a safe environment in which to develop self-confidence and build self-esteem, as well as gaining valuable work skills.
