Shared Lives

Shared lives offers people a flexible and alternative form of accommodation and/or care and support using ordinary individuals and households from the local community.  In shared lives people from 17 + who need support and/or accommodation move in with or regularly visit a shared lives carer or household, after they have been carefully matched.  Together they share family and community life.  Shared lives can be used as a stepping stone for someone to get their own place, short breaks, longer term arrangements and community support.  Shared lives carers go through a rigorous training, approval and matching process and will receive regular support from the shared lives team
