Volunteer with Shaw Trust and help create brighter futures for people in your community.

At the project, we produce plants, shrubs and other garden products for sale to the local community. This social enterprise supports disabled and disadvantaged local people to participate in the life of the project, access training, socialise and gain work experience within a horticultural/retail environment, which can be used as a stepping stone into employment and a more fulfilling life.
Shaw Trust provides employment opportunities, skills development training, and health and wellbeing services across the UK. We operate charitable social enterprises and retail shops, and work alongside Shaw Education Trust, which runs a diverse chain of academy schools.We add value to every service we deliver by investing back into community projects, such as our social enterprises, Community Hubs and national volunteering scheme.

Volunteers help us achieve our aim of empowering people and supporting them towards employment and/or helping with their mental health and wellbeing. They also help in our schools and Social Enterprises and they help us run our charity shops too.

Shaw Trust volunteers are at the heart of everything we do.
