Shared folder for jailshell users

We are running CentOS 5 and have a few (cPanal) user accounts that need to share data.
One user account requires read/write access, the others read only.
All users are running the jailshell.

I've tried using a symbolic link to provide access to the shared directory ......
ln -s /home/user1/public_html/SharedArea /home/user2/public_html/SharedArea

However, when user2 tries to access the SharedArea directory (eg. via "cd" command) an error is returned ....
-jailshell: cd: SharedArea: No such file or directory

I've played with the permissions on the SharedArea directory, all to no avail.

Any thoughts on how a shared directory can be achieved ?
