About the organisation

Share Community

Share works with people with disabilities who need extra help and support in order to achieve their potential and realise their dreams and aspirations. Share’s aim is to transform disabled people’s lives so that they live more independently and make choices about all aspects of their lives. We provide training and employment support for disabled adults, including those with learning disabilities, physical/sensory impairments, autism and mental health needs. Share was founded in 1972. We are based in the London Borough of Wandsworth, but we work across the boroughs in London, supporting residents from Lambeth, Southwark, Croydon and Merton among others.

Application deadline: 

We run a Music group for adults with disabilities. If you have a musical background or an interest in music, and would like to support our students for a few hours a week, we’d love to hear from you!

Role Aim: 

To support student engagement in our music classes.

Duties: 

Support the class tutor and take instructions, namely with handling of musical instruments and ensuring our students are able to participate.

Skills needed: 

You should have an interest in supporting adults with learning disabilities and be able to follow instructions from the music tutor. You’ll need to be patient, supportive and interested in people and their wellbeing. An interest in music is essential, and if you can play an acoustic instrument this would be a great advantage, however it is not essential.

Training: 

You will receive a comprehensive induction. You’ll receive on-going support, an opportunity to develop your skills, and most of all a genuine opportunity to make a difference to people at risk of social isolation. The cost of your activities will be covered, and your travel will be reimbursed.
