A year in reviewIt'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.

Click our donate button and become part of our growing community.


Share at the House of Lords

Share CEO and Chair, with Patrons Lord Alf Dubs and Patricia HodgeIt'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.

Great Brownie Bake Off for the Learning Disability Today Exhibition and Conference 2016!

Share exhibited at the Learning Disability Today Exhibition and Conference on 29th November 2016. 

It was great to see so many new and familiar faces at the event, which also gave us a wonderful opportunity to showcase our healthy living project in our very own 'Great Brownie Bake Off'.

Sweet potato browniesVisitors 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!
