About Shaw TrustAt Shaw Trust we believe in fairness, equality and opportunity.
We believe everyone has the right to live a decent and dignified life and have an opportunity for rewarding work. We are a social purpose organisation challenging inequality and breaking down barriers to enable social mobility.
Having grown from humble beginnings in 1982 in the village of Shaw in Wiltshire, finding jobs for disabled people, today we are a complex and diverse charity committed to employment as the core pathway to a better life. For us being part of the solution is about creating the conditions for this to happen, advocating and delivering services that make a real difference. Working in partnership not competition, we are part of an eco-system of purpose-led organisations, striving for a fairer, more equal society centred on opportunity for all. Shaw Trust was founded on these principles nearly 40 years ago, and for our 3,000 employees and 700 volunteers across the UK, they remain true.
