Sharing Lives - Overview

Aġenzija Sapport facilitates voluntary work experiences with persons with disability. Volunteers can now join the Agency’s service – Sharing Lives – to offer some of their time to support persons with disability within the community.

Sharing Lives was launched in April 2017, to offer opportunities where volunteers and persons with disabilities, especially for those who have little or no support, to:

  • share experiences
  • create social interactions and
  • befriend persons with disabilities

The befriending aspect of the service will help in initiating dialogue and collaboration between persons with disability and mainstream society. It gives the opportunity for persons with disability to take part in events and activities and overcome social exclusion while developing meaningful relationships.

Persons with disability benefiting from the Sharing Lives service are adults, over 18 years, and are known service users of other Sapport services.

Volunteers may be individuals or entities that offer time and resources to create social events and activities for persons with disabilities on a one-to-one basis or group activities.
