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 pleased to announce that these talks have now progressed more widely to the likelihood of the Prospects Group becoming part of Shaw Trust later this calendar year.

Prospects and Shaw Trust believe that we can both benefit from such a new strategic relationship ensuring that more young people and adults are supported to transform their lives every year.

More information will be available later in the autumn.
