Join us for Share Community's Open Day on Thursday 14th September 2017, from 12.30pm to 3.30pm, with lunch.
The day is for professionals or parents/carers who work with, support or care for disabled adults, as well as students who are looking to take their next step in education or employment.
Share provides training and employment support for disabled adults, including those with learning disabilities, autism, physical/sensory impairments and mental health needs.
We teach independent living skills, basic skills (English and maths), catering and digital skills at our facilities in Battersea, and horticulture at our 2.5-acre garden in Tooting, based within the grounds of Springfield University Hospital. And we operate two social enterprises – Share Catering and Share Gardening – to provide safe and supported employment opportunities for our students.
In addition, we provide a range of programmes aimed at personal development, and health and wellbeing, such as yoga, Zumba, creative writing and music.
We also run a fun social programme, called Go Anywhere, Do Anything for people with learning disabilities to get out and about in and around London.
During the Open Day you'll hear about how we are making all our courses more practical and community-based and why, how we are integrating health and wellbeing, and digital and employability skills into all areas of our training, and how we're working to involve parents and carers to support the people they care for.
You'll have a chance to take a look at our facilities, including our digital, interactive Immersive Learning Centre, and you'll have an opportunity to talk with senior managers, tutors, staff and current students about life at Share, and find out how you can refer someone to study at Share.
Share Community is a registered charity based in Wandsworth. We work with people across the boroughs in London. Students are usually referred to us by their professional support network (eg, social workers), their family/carers or people can refer themselves.
