Involve your company


Over the years, we've worked closely with many companies to give people in prison the opportunity to learn to read. Sharing your skills, helping us shape our future work and fundraising to support it are just some of the ways your business can be part of the story.

Sharing skills

As a small charity with a large reach, we value the expertise and skills other people can bring to our work. From strategy and marketing to IT, Shannon Trust has benefited from a range of pro bono support from organisations such as BearingPoint, Camelot, The Quarto Foundation and the Aimar Foundation. 

A small amount of time from members of your team we can take significant steps towards our vision of every prisoner a reader.

Company employees who've shared their skills with Shannon Trust, tell us how it's opened their eyes to an area of life they didn't know about before and allowed them to understand different ways of working.

Partnering with us is a great way to develop your team, experience a different sector and contribute something incredible - by helping us to unlock the power of reading.
