Shared Lives scheme

Shared Lives is a scheme for adults aged 16 plus who have a long term eligible social care need and require support. 

Support can be for short breaks, respite, day support, or full-time live in care.

People who visit or live with a Shared Lives carer may be: 

  • someone with learning or physical disabilities
  • an older person
  • a young person in transition from fostering

Our carers

Our Shared Lives carers provide care and support in a comfortable family home environment, enabling people supported to live independently as long as possible in their community. 

A careful assessment and matching process makes sure individuals are paired with suitable Shared Lives carers who will treat them as members of their family, meet their needs and provide the right support.
