Work with us

Shaw Trust works in partnership with a diverse range of public, private and third sector organisations to create brighter futures for the people and communities we serve. This includes working with national commissioners like the Department for Work and Pensions and local authorities to deliver high quality employment, skills and health and wellbeing services to help local communities thrive. It also includes working with local delivery partners to expand the reach and expertise our services offer. 

Shaw Trust works as a prime provider, subcontractor and joint venture partner: our service delivery models are individually built using the right partnerships to best support our clients’ needs. 


Working in partnership with Shaw Trust

Working in true partnership with organisations to deliver high quality services is crucial to Shaw Trust’s mission of helping individuals to lead independent and inclusive lives. We want to work with innovative partners with proven high performance and a strong presence in the communities they work in. We also look for opportunities for co-location, alignment of funding streams and complementary services to provide a better experience for the participant and a cost effective solution for commissioners.


How to partner with us

Please register your interest in working with Shaw Trust by registering on the Proactis portal below:

Register on the Proactis portal

Suppliers who register on the portal and are approved to proceed will then be invited to complete our Approved Supplier Framework New Provider questionnaire. This stage maps to the Merlin Standard EOI and evaluates each potential partner’s basic delivery experience, quality of service and financial standing.

Partners who pass Shaw Trust’s minimum requirements will then be able to progress to the next stage. This might include a live opportunity which you are expressing interest in. Being in our Approved Supplier Framework means you’ll be notified of a range of suitable tendering opportunities on an on-going basis. You will be asked to update the information you submitted on the Framework on an annual basis.
