Share students explore their creativity

Our arts and wellbeing programme is going from strength to strength. There’s long been a general understanding of the positive effects taking part in arts programmes can have on health and wellbeing. We provide creative multi-sensory experiences and opportunities for people with learning disabilities to help express themselves. Our students have been engaging in a range of activities giving them a chance to interact with others, grow in confidence, and explore their creative sides. They’ve been working on textiles and upcycling, digital and sensory art with lots more exciting things to come in 2020!

Help us to be more inclusive

What makes somebody volunteer for a charity? We’re working with nine other charities in Wandsworth to better understand why some people volunteer and some don’t. We recognise that for some of our charities, the diversity of our current volunteers may not always reflect the diversity of our beneficiaries. We’re interested in hearing from you, whether you volunteer or not, about your views and experiences of volunteering. With your help, we are keen to broaden our diversity as well as reach people out there who may be fantastic volunteers, but face barriers to getting involved. Please take a few minutes to complete our survey, your views are very important to us so thank you!

If you'd like to find out more about our project, or you'd like us to share our findings and next steps, please get in touch on voldiversity2020@hotmail.com.

New year, new opportunity?

A flexible workforce is essential for us to provide continued quality support and services to our students. We need bank staff who can step in on an ad hoc basis to provide cover for our teachers when they’re on leave or unwell. We currently need SEN tutors to teach independent living, employability, digital skills and/or English and maths courses at our site in Clapham Junction. We also need horticultural trainers to work at our garden in Tooting. Classes run from 10am until 4pm and work is offered as-needed and normally booked in advance. If this is you please get in touch with Leanne at leannew@sharecommunity.org.uk.

What you need to know about Brexit and the EU Settlement Scheme

Some of our students and readers need to know about how the UK leaving the EU might affect them. If you are an EU citizen you or your family members can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue to live, work and study in the UK. We’ve put together information from Citizens’ Advice to help you understand if you will be affected by Brexit, and if so, what steps you need to take. This may affect you, even if you’ve lived in the UK for many years.

If you need to apply for Settled Status, Citizen’s Advice recommend you do it now. If you’re a carer, the person you’re looking after may need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme. After the UK leaves the EU you might be asked to prove that you have a right to do things like get a job or use the NHS. You’ll be able to do this by showing you have ‘pre-settled status’ or ‘settled status’ under the EU Settlement Scheme, or British citizenship. 

You should apply by 31 December 2020 as your rights could change after that date.
