About St Giles Trust

St Giles Trust help those facing severe disadvantage to find jobs, homes and support and become positive contributors to society. They work to prevent the children of offenders from entering the criminal justice system and empower clients to lead positive lives.

Employees are persistent in their aim to help members of society and they follow the charity’s mission to never give up on people. Some 250 staff and volunteers from around the UK attended the 2017 summer away day, taking a boat down the River Thames and enjoying a picnic at Greenwich Park.

All staff, volunteers and their family and friends can access a confidential helpline for advice on legal, financial or health issues and flexible working is actively promoted throughout the organisation. St Giles Trust’ recruitment process includes values-based interviews, and all staff appraisals focus on individuals’ contribution to the charity and how they adopt its values.
