eed for the future.
We work with some of the country’s most vulnerable children and young people. They are often at risk of poor educational attainment, social exclusion, exploitation and substance misuse issues. By taking a restorative and reflective approach we build resilience in young people empowering them to improve their life chances. This belief in potential underlies our commitment to do our best to support each child’s transition into adulthood.
At Shaw Trust our aim is to help people improve their mental and physical health and to strengthen and take control of their overall wellbeing. We work in partnership with local groups and commissioners to support the wellbeing of employees and those who are unemployed. We connect people with the services they need, when they need them. Working across communities with a wide array of local partners we ensure those supported can improve their everyday living, tackle levels of anxiety, become more independent and confident, meet new people, get better skills and move into work which supports their health and lifestyle goals.
