What is it?
A simple way to mobilise the community in support of the poor and marginalised locally, encouraging volunteering, social engagement, development and cohesion.
Reaching out to isolated, socially excluded and other people groups in the community is a continual priority for local councils. But with reduced budgets along with increasing need, getting the sufficient manpower to deliver this service is becoming more and more challenging, yet ever more critical.
ShareTheMiracle provides an effective way to mobilise volunteers and bring people together across different generations, cultures and backgrounds.
How can I get involved?
We invite councils to run and promote ShareTheMiracle Stations throughout the borough. Encouraging other organisations and individuals to run Stations further supports the community and is an excellent opportunity to secure potential longer term volunteers by allowing them to meet other people in the community that may not ordinarily. Reaching out to individuals in scout groups, schools, churches, businesses and other volunteer organisations, could prove to be a successful source of recruitment. Council colleagues may also be able to advise where the eggs could be best received.
Case Study: Westminster Council
Westminster Council arranged for pupils at St Barnabas Primary School to attend Pullen Day Centre where they presented chocolate eggs and a ShareTheMiracle Easter invitation card to residents. The school also decided to take the choir who were able to give a musical performance for the residents. A wonderful intergenerational occasion and the school has already organised a follow up visit.
