Vanessa Schembri - Leader, Sharing Liveswebsite pic-01-01-01.jpg

How long have you been working at Aġenzija Sapport and what does your role involve? 
I have been working with Aġenzija Sapport for 15 years now. My profession is in Social Work however, I have taken on different roles within the Agency over time. 

My current role as Leader of Sharing Lives involves working with a team of professionals to support volunteers in creating activities to give greater access to leisure and cultural opportunities to persons with disability.

Describe either your most satisfying moment or your biggest challenge in your career. 
The rave party we organised in 2019 that our service users named Power Pie. For this project Aġenzija Sapport worked with two different organisations both of which had never worked with persons with disability before, and together we managed to create a space where young service users performed as DJs. In addition, we managed to reach around 100 persons with disability on the day, and inspired other volunteers to create their own projects. The impact of the project was beyond what we had expected, which is why I consider it one of the most satisfying moments. 

What is your favourite food?
