As reported earlier this autumn the Prospects Group and Shaw Trust have been in strategic partnership talks for a number of months with regard to the great synergy and shared values between our organisations and the opportunities to work more closely together in a variety of business areas. 

We are now pleased to announce that there has been an exchange of contracts and that we are on track for the Prospects Group to become part of Shaw Trust by the end of November.

Both Prospects and Shaw Trust are excited about the opportunities ahead to further develop and grow a wide range of services both nationally and locally and most importantly to ensure that more young people and adults are supported to transform their lives every year.



The Prospects Group provides tailored education, employment, training and care products and services for people at all stages of life. Each year we inspire more than 500,000 people to develop their potential and transform their lives.
