Shaw Trust has over thirty years’ experience of providing employment services to help people from a diverse range of backgrounds to find and stay in work. We work with local commissioners like Kent County Council and with national commissioners such as the Department for Work and Pensions to deliver employment programmes across the UK.
Our employment programmes help individuals to gain the skills they need to develop a successful career. We offer employability training, interview skills practice, and holistic and personalised support to enable individuals to overcome their barriers to work. At Shaw Trust we believe that everyone has the right to engage in meaningful work that they enjoy and that helps them to live independent and inclusive lives.
What we deliver
Shaw Trust delivers a range of employment services including:
The Specialist Employability Support
service, which supports unemployed disabled adults with complex needs to gain the skills they need to live independent lives and to move into employment. Shaw Trust delivers nationwide. SES is co-financed through the European Social Fund. If you are interested in joining Specialist Employability Support please contact your local Jobcentre Plus office. After a conversation with a Work Coach you may be able to be referred to your local Specialist Employability Support provision.
