It's going to be a great year!

Say hello to 2019 with Share's Impact Report and 2019 Calendar which features a collection of poems written by our creative writing students and artwork produced by Share students.

January's poem predicts 'It's going to be a great year!' and we really hope so! We have great plans for the coming year to grow Share and support even more students to reach their potential, and live happier, healthier and more independent lives.

Download your copy of our Impact Report and Calendar from Share's website at http://bit.ly/2F3y7U0 or email marcomms@sharecommunity.org.uk if you would like us to send you a hard copy.

New Year surprise

We were surprised and delighted to be awarded a grant of over £60,000 by a charitable trust that wishes to remain anonymous. This was a wonderful way to start the new year, and means that we can continue to grow and develop our health and wellbeing services. We’re deeply grateful to the trust concerned, who also fund one of our other projects.

Thanks to their generosity, we can empower people with learning disabilities to make healthy lifestyle, food and exercise choices. People with learning disabilities have been found to die much earlier – up to 20 years on average – than the rest of the population, and we’re determined to do everything we can to make this a thing of the past by ensuring that people get the health information they need in accessible formats; learn how to cook simple, fresh and healthy food; discover the joys and variety of exercise; and find out how to reduce stress and stay mentally healthy.

Around 87% of those who took part in these gym sessions saw an improvement in their weight, body mass index (BMI) and functional muscle strength. And 50% of students were able to improve their cardiorespiratory function, endurance and flexibility.
