Share your skills

As a small charity with a large reach, we value the expertise and skills that 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. 

With 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, realise your CSR goals, experience a different sector and contribute something incredible - by helping us to unlock the power of reading.
