We are still on a high after winning the 2017 Mayor's Award at the Active Wandsworth Awards in February for our healthy living project, Live Well, Feel Great!, supported by the Wimbledon Foundation.
The Award recognises an individual, organisation or project that increases opportunities for disabled people in Wandsworth to participate in sport or physical activity.
The aim of our healthy living project is to tackle some of the health inequalities faced by people with learning disabilities, and the project is already making a significant and positive difference in our students' overall wellbeing. But it doesn't stop there! We have lots of plans for the future and look forward to providing even more healthy living opportunities for our students in the coming year.
Digital skills for independent living
We used 6th February 2018 – Safer Internet Day – to reinforce some everyday learning about staying safe online for our students studying independent living skills.
Digital skills at Share aims to find innovative solutions to help our students live, learn and communicate in a way that suits them best, whether this is for living, work or simply for fun.
To find out more about digital skills at Share, contact Gina Morten, Share's Digital Inclusion Manager, via email firstname.lastname@example.org

Share's March Recipe of the month
In this month's recipe video, Ummair and Shanice show us how to make Roasted Vegetable
This is one of 12 recipes appearing in Share's Impact Report for 2016/17 which this year is a recipe calendar!
All of the recipes in the calendar were developed as part of Share's independent living skills programme in association with our healthy living project, Live Well, Feel Great!, to help our students to learn everyday skills such as cooking a simple, nutritious meal for themselves.
As well at 12 mouthwatering and healthy recipes, the impact report showcases our work, including our students' achievements and stories.
Each video recipe of the month also appears on Share's YouTube channel. In January, Mark showed us how to make Overnight Oats, and in February, Chris showed us how to make Eggs en Croute.
If you can't wait for each recipe of the month, get all 12 recipes in our FREE recipe 2018 calendar by contacting Jane Wingfield, Share's Wellbeing Administrator, via email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 020 7801 9812.
