November/December 2016. Share at the House of Lords. Share Annual Awards Day 2016. Learning Disability Today Conference and Exhibition 2016. Parents and carers' meetings 2017. Autism update. Impact report 2015/16. Season's Greetings!
It's been an extraordinary year at Share with so much to celebrate and be positive about in what remains a challenging environment for the voluntary sector.
So we are ever grateful to our partners and sponsors for their continued support which has helped us to achieve great things during 2016.
As we cast our thoughts to our hopes and dreams for 2017, we know that there is still much to do, and we need all the support we can get if we are to survive and thrive.
We therefore invite you to remember Share in your New Year resolutions – a monthly donation of whatever you can afford will help us to carry on helping the people we support to be healthy, independent and happy.

It's not everyday you get the chance to entertain guests at the House of Lords, so we were delighted, honoured and humbled by the opportunity presented to us by one of our Patrons, Lord Alf Dubs.
The event was a chance to highlight how Share is using technology to revolutionise how our students live, learn and communicate. This work, which integrates many streams of Share's work, including independent living skills and healthy living, was showcased in a film called Edmond's Potato, which we were able to premiere during the evening.
On 7th November 2016, Share celebrated our students' successes and achievements for 2016 at our Annual Awards Ceremony at the Civic Suite in Wandsworth.
Once again, kindly sponsored and supported by Sterling Media and the Khalsa Centre in Tooting, and hosted by the Mayor of Wandsworth, Cllr Richard Field, this event gives us an opportunity to show off the best of Share.
Visitors to the Share stand were able to pick up a bag of Sweet Potato Brownies (too good to Share!), specially prepared and packaged for the event by Share students. A healthy irresistable treat made with two of your 'five a day', no sugar, and gluten-free too!
Going by the comments we had back at the event, we think the Share Brownies went down a storm!
Last month, the Share Garden was subject to one of its regular reviews by our adviser at the National Autistic Society (NAS), as part of our continuing journey to becoming an autism-accredited organisation.
We were delighted to receive a glowing report on how we are using and organising the space in our garden for our autistic students.
As well as highlighting our work, the report showcases our students' artwork in a calendar for 2017. The theme for this year's calendar is 'Do you think you're beautiful?' and uses colour to explore self-expression.
