Hi,

I just wondered if anyone here could explain the relationship this organisation has with this website.

I have never been part of the work programme myself but some of the stories I've heard are terrible and the Shaw Trust were often culpable in causing all kinds of distress to people in this way.

Therefore I find it inappropriate that they have a relationship with this website, which is a site that's meant to help people. I'm not sure if the following is true or not but the impression that I have from my friends experiences is that the Shaw Trust is an organisations that takes bungs government for getting people off benefits and putting people into 'training' which is often of no use to jobseekers or ill or disabled people but instead serves to make their lives more uncomfortable.

I'm not saying this is true or not, I don't know but they weren't really interested in helping my friends anyway.
