DescriptionShare provides accredited vocational training, day care, employability, and personal development programmes to disabled adults, including people with mental health needs, autism, learning, or physical disabilities. Whether you’re looking to live more independently, get ready for work, or want to improve and maintain your wellbeing, we help you to reach your potential in our friendly and dynamic, person-centred learning environment.

All of our main courses lead to nationally recognised qualifications. Courses available include: life skills for independent living, horticulture, ICT, basic skills, food hygiene and catering, and getting ready for work. Our ‘Winning with Work’ programme is for people who’ve had serious mental health problems and now want to find a job. You work at your own speed to achieve your own goals. Extra activities such as yoga, arts and crafts, creative writing, and music are also on offer.

Short courses, some of which you can access without a personal budget, include:

- Baking
- Mapping: using and understanding maps (free course)
- Street dance (free course)
- Digital skills for life

People come to SHARE to build confidence, to learn to live more independently, and/or to gain qualifications that may provide a stepping stone to further education or employment. Everyone has their own individual learning plan developed with them, so all learning is flexible and tailored to the needs and wants of the student.
