Service description:
Shared Lives - Living With A Supportive Family

If one day you might like to live by yourself, but are not ready at the moment, you may be interested in our Shared Lives scheme.

Every year, we match adults who have a range of different needs with caring and supportive families or individuals who welcome them into their homes and provide full-time support.

Personalised Support In A Family Environment

If you decide that Shared Lives is right for you, we’ll talk to you about the support you need and then carefully look for a carer and surroundings that meet these requirements.

Once you have settled in, we’ll regularly visit to make sure you are happy, and that the support you are getting is working for you.

Long-term Support Or Short Breaks

You may either decide to use our Shared Lives service to look for a long-term home or short-term respite break. Some people are looking for permanent homes, whereas others just need a short break overnight or for a few days.
