Share's Movement for Life project has been given the go ahead, thanks to funding awarded by the Wandsworth Grant Fund.
This one-year project, which starts in January 2019, will allow Share to provide a variety of healthy living activities for our students, including therapeutic movement and dance activities specifically designed for adults with learning disabilities and autism, delivered by Movement Works. In addition, we'll be able to continue to provide regular sports and physical activity sessions for our students, including keep fit, boccia, Zumba, outdoor walks and gym sessions, delivered by Disability Sports Coach.
Our aim is get our students more active and, in doing so, improve their general health and wellbeing. This approach gives them the necessary tools and exercises to address any ongoing physical and mental health concerns they may be experiencing, which they can put into practice both at Share and at home.
