Share's autistic students go on a sensory voyage

Blowing bubblesShare is currently running a 12-week sensory project called My SPACE, which aims to support our autistic students to better understand their senses and hence manage their sensory environment to improve their general wellbeing.

This ambitious project, which is funded by Lifelong Learning, is providing exciting and, often, surprising insights into our students' characters, helping their personalities to shine and smile.

For more information about this project, contact Share's Head of Training, Robert Boyce, via email robertb@sharecommunity.org.uk or telephone 020 7801 9815.

Wedding wishes, flowers and a poem

This month saw the wedding of long-time supporter of Share Ana Jablonska to her partner Paul. Ana's father Peter was general manager at Share many years go so we were delighted to send our very best wishes to the lovely couple with a little something from Share. 

Share Nurseries provided some planters for the big day, while our creative writing students got busy writing some vows for the wedding, which appeared on packets of seeds given to guests as wedding favours.

Congratulations to you both! Wishing you much happiness from everyone at Share.

Plants for Sale at Share Nurseries

Huge thanks to the Wimbledon Foundation and the Head Gardener at the All England Lawn Tennis Club for donating a wide selection of plants to Share's social enterprise Share Nurseries following this year's Wimbledon Championships. 

We've just taken delivery of our plants, some of which will be planted in the Share Garden and some of which will be used in our horticulture training. But some of them are available for sale to raise funds for Share.

So if you'd like a little piece of this year's Wimbledon Championships, get in touch! There are lots of plants to choose from including gardenias (£3 per plant), red (£10 per plant) and white (£15 per plant) peace lilies (Spathiphyllum). Plus Share's usual selection of summer bedding, vegetable and herb plants still going strong.

Share Nurseries is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm. For more information, contact Share's Horticulture Training Manager, Sarah Bailes, via email sarahb@sharecommunity.org.uk or telephone 07837 180 774.

Employability skills at Share

Share students initially gain employability skills by working in our social enterprises – Share Nurseries and Share Catering – which provide real-life practical work experience in a safe and supported environment. Our Job Coaches then work with our students to hone those skills with a view to helping our students to take the next step – working or volunteering in the local community.

We’d love to hear from anyone who may have work placement or volunteering opportunities, particularly in retail, administration, warehouse and care work. Simple changes – reasonable adjustments to give them their technical term – can help our students reach their potential and take their rightful place as integral members of the workforce and society in general.

To find out more about our employability work and how you can help, contact our Job Coaches, Claire Smith, via email claires@sharecommunity.org.uk or Jaime Johnson, via email jaimej@sharecommunity.org.uk or telephone 020 7924 2949.

Shop and fundraise for Share

Share is now a member of Amazon Smile, which supports charitable organisations such as Share to fundraise as customers shop.

AmazonSmile is the same as Amazon, providing the same products, same prices and same service.

Healthy recipes from Share

Have you tried any of the recipes featured in Share's Impact Report for 2016/17?.
