Share students explore the history of local parks
We’re working with The National Archives and Wandsworth libraries and Heritage Service on an exciting new project looking at historical documents about parks. Students have enjoyed tranquil yet informative walks in local parks and also taken part in workshops creating collages and other artistic designs inspired by archived material. The project
will culminate with an exhibition of their artwork in November so watch this space!

All about healthy eating
Our students recently took part in a healthy eating workshop run by Waitrose. One of our core objectives is to tackle the health inequalities that exist for those with learning disabilities. So it was great for students to learn how to identify healthy food options when shopping in the supermarket, including which foods count as one of your ‘5 a day’ and how to use the traffic light system.

Annie talks about our core values
At Share, we really care about how people experience our organisation. Whether you’re a Share student, a member of staff, a parent, a carer, a volunteer, or someone from a partner agency, we want every encounter you have with us to be positive. We aim to bring a smile to everyone’s face when they come to Share, and we actively work to build alliances with people and organisations. That’s why I’m so delighted to see the very high scores that people give us when we send out our annual surveys. An astounding 98% of
our students said they felt happy at Share, with 88% saying we helped them to make decisions on their own and 83% saying we helped them to do things independently. 97% of parents and carers felt that we helped our students to become more independent, with 100% of respondents saying that we helped people to communicate more effectively, be more confident, and have better relationships.
Happy staff make for a successful organisation, and so having 92% of staff saying that they’re happy at Share is excellent news. 75% felt that we’d changed for the better, and would continue to improve. And 100% of volunteers would recommend volunteering with us to others. All of our surveys are anonymous, and we follow up with “you said, we did” action plans. It’s through feedback from parents and carers that we’re focusing our independent living skills on more community based activities, for example. Kindness and compassion are core Share values, and I’m proud to say that I’m confident that whatever your relationship with Share, we will be doing everything we can do give you
an unbeatable experience.
