What we do:

Shaw Trust is a national charity working to create brighter futures for the people and communities we serve.

For over 35 years we’ve been helping people recognise and fulfil their potential. For many people we simply offer support at critical times during their personal journey. For others we make a life-changing impact, transforming their confidence and health so they lead happier independent lives. We help them realise they have something to offer and they are important.

We support people by providing employment opportunities, skills development training, and health and wellbeing services across the UK. We understand how challenges can impact on people’s life and work goals. We also support older workers and NEETs (younger people not in education, employment or training). And we operate social enterprises, retail shops and work alongside Shaw Education Trust, which runs a diverse chain of academy schools, to ensure young people have the best chance of realising their dreams.

We add value by investing back into our local communities.

By running the Virgin Money London Marathon for us, you’ll help us reach our goal of creating an inclusive world where everyone achieves their potential and positively impacts their community.
