About Shaw Trust

Shaw Trust is a national charity helping people improve their life outcomes and be the best they possibly can. We do this through employment, education and care services. We take great pride in advocating for the social changes required to ensure that the communities we serve are protected, strengthened and able to improve their circumstances.

We primarily help people with complex needs, whether it is because of social, economic or disability barriers. We do this through a range of services, such as apprenticeships, careers advice and our children’s homes.

We listen to the people we support to continuously improve our services to them. We take an evidenced-based approach to shaping public policy and commissioning and designing services of the future. We partner with national and local organisations to maximise the positive impact to our beneficiaries, meet local needs and nurture sustainable communities and supply chains; we aim to add social value to all our programmes and build social equity.
