Well, it has been quite a month at Share! Made even better by the news, that Share Community has been awarded Autism Accreditation by the National Autistic Society.
This makes us only the second accredited organisation in Wandsworth and the first day care service in the borough to achieve accreditation.
Over the past three years, Share has reviewed and improved every part of the organisation, from making its environment less cluttered and brighter through to making sure its communication is accessible and autism friendly.

Plant Sale and Healthy Living Community Day
Our Plant Sale and Healthy Living Community Day on 2nd June 2018 was everything we'd hoped for. It was wonderful to see so many people from the local community who came along to help us celebrate the launch of our gardening social enterprise, Share Nurseries.
Huge thanks to everyone who supported the event, including our local MP for Battersea and Shadow Minister for Disabled People, Marsha de Cordova, the Deputy Mayor of Wandsworth, Cllr Jane Cooper, all our amazing sponsors, stallholders, and partners and supporters, Bikeworks and Treblemakers.
A reminder that Share Nurseries is now open to the public for plant sales from Monday to Friday, from 9am to 3pm. To find out more, contact Share's Horticulture Training Manager, Sarah Bailes via email email@example.com or telephone 07837 180774.
