Shared Space has welcomed several refugees to the growing team of shop volunteers. And it has been good to try and learn Farsi as our new Iranian friends learn English.

The team has always prided itself on being a welcoming, diverse and inclusive place and we’re loving this – including the Persian food we’re now eating and the new friendships made.

Along with welcoming refugees, Shared Space has also supplied over 1,000 items of clothing and clothing rails systems to 100+ refugees being housed in temporary accommodation in Southend.
