Go Anywhere, Do Anything is our exciting social inclusion project that was launched in May 2014 for people to have fun and enjoy life. The project is funded by the Henry Smith Charity, Mercers' Company, Merchant Taylors' Company, and the Hummingbird Charitable Trust. It was originally funded for three years by the City of London Corporation's charity, the City Bridge Trust.
Our brief is simple: to offer people with learning disabilities opportunities to go anywhere and do anything. We want people to have big dreams about adventure and try new things, from rollercoasters to rollerdiscos. We find out what makes people happy, and then make it happen.
People with learning disabilities tell us they can find it difficult to get out socially and meet new people. Life is better shared, and we want to provide opportunities for people to connect, relax, and have fun.
This video gives you a little taster of what we get up to (filmed pre-COVID):
The project is supported by a team of fully trained volunteer social buddies. If you're interested in volunteering, please get in touch.
The Go Anywhere, Do Anything project is open to anyone who attends Share . The pandemic interrupted our trips out but we continued connecting online, running Zoom parties, museum tours, talent shows and more. Trips out are running once again following COVID-safe protocols.
If you're a student at Share and would like to suggest a trip to go on, we'll see what we can do!
