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 day-to-day basis. This post provides day support for individuals who may not be suited to day centres or work placements. This can be in the community or in your own home.

The role is very flexible, and you would only provide day support when you are available to do so. This is not a domiciliary care position, and this is not rostered. Many support bookings are for a minimum of 3 hours. 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 an open heart.
