Help someone live a thriving life

Shared Lives

Shared Lives is a care service that matches people aged 16 and above who want to live independently in their community with an approved Shared Lives carer. This carer shares their home and community life to support the person to live their highest quality of life. It gives them the opportunity to live in a family environment instead of staying in a residential setting or being looked after by support workers.
