Shared Lives is a care and support service which offers an alternative to supported living or residential care. We support adults to live independently in their community with the support of a family and community network. It can be described as a bit like fostering, but for adults. People are matched based on shared interests, lifestyles, and sense of humour. Shared lives offer a rewarding and flexible way to support someone in your family home.

The people we support attend day service, work placement, volunteer or have day support from another carer Monday to Friday. You will be responsible for supporting an individual, who is carefully matched to your family, with daily living skills on a short-term basis. This is a post to provide respite support for full time Shared Lives carers and unpaid carers in your own home. The role is very flexible, and you would only provide respite when you are available to do so. As a shared lives carer, you could support- People with Learning disabilities, Autism, Mental health issues, ABI, Mum and baby, Dementia or people who need support after living in a Domestic Violence environment. All you need to be a shared lives carer is a spare room and an open heart.
