CareTrade believes passionately that all young people should be given the opportunity to reach their potential and lead fulfilling lives.
There is evidence that with the right support many, many more of these young people are able and would like to work and to play an active part in their community. And for those whose autism limits their ability to become fully independent, they too need more choices and opportunities to live full and happy lives.
Share provides training and employment support for disabled people, including those with learning disabilities, physical/sensory impairments, autism and mental health needs.
Share also has a Go Anywhere, Do Anything initiative for those with learning disabilities to inspire and support them to explore London.
We provide a variety of full time courses from Entry Level through to Level 2 and are able to meet your needs. Our courses aim to help you become more independent at home, in the community and/or prepare you for employment. Courses are based at the St Albans Campus and Welwyn Garden City Campus. Provision for students with high support needs is based at our Springfield Centre at St Albans Campus.
The quality of our courses encourages many students to travel from neighbouring counties and North London.
