The Together Trust is a British charity,[1] founded in 1870 by Leonard Kilbee Shaw and Richard Bramwell Taylor as the Manchester and Salford Boys' and Girls' Refuges and Homes. It provides care, special education and community support services in the north west of England.[2][3]


The trust's work in special education includes the provision of Ashcroft School (previously CYCES) for pupils aged 8–18 with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties, and Inscape House School for pupils aged 5–19 with autism, both in Cheadle, and Bridge College, a college for young people aged 16–25 at Openshaw.[4]

The Trust works in foster care, and the provision of residential social care and home care services.
