Share has been working alongside other voluntary organisations in Wandsworth over the past few months to campaign for better support of the voluntary and community sector in the borough.
We’re therefore very excited to announce the date for a conference to be held on 15th May 2019 which will, for the first time in recent memory, bring together voluntary groups to talk about getting stronger together.
Sessions will include workshops and talks about fundraising, getting and keeping volunteers, building great management committees and boards, and much more. Find out more on Share's website at http://bit.ly/2HtAUqP.
If you are a local voluntary or community organisation and would like to build closer links with others in the borough of Wandsworth, join us on 15th May 2019 at the PCS Union Building, 160 Falcon Rd, London SW11 2LN, in Clapham Junction from 12 noon to 5pm.
The event is free to attend but numbers are limited so register now via Eventbrite.
Social services reviews
We’ve been concerned about the number of social services reviews that have been held without providers like Share being invited.
We’re talking with social services in Wandsworth about it, but in the meantime, if you or the person you care for is in this position, do make sure you have all the right people at your review.
It’s important that you have the people who know you best and can talk about your achievements and the goals you’re still working towards at your review. And remember that Share's Wellbeing Team is here to help.
For more information or to discuss any concerns you may have about an upcoming social services review, contact Share's Wellbeing and Outreach Manager, Karen Miles, via email email@example.com or telephone 07445 365 365.

Funding successes for Share
Share is delighted to have received two key grants over the past few months.
The first – awarded by the Arts Council England National Lottery – is to develop our music project Rhythms and Tunes to help our students
develop crucial life skills through music.
The second – granted by National Lottery Awards for All – will help us to develop an integrated student database to better manage each student's journey and progress through Share.
