Shared Lives scheme

Shared Lives is a nationwide scheme that helps adults with social care needs. Our Shared Lives carers provide support from their own homes. You could get support in a carer's home if you have:

  • a disability
  • mental health issues
  • autism
  • age related needs, for example Dementia

Types of support

We will pair you with one of our registered Shared Lives carers. The support we offer includes:

  • long term support through living with a carer for an agreed period of time
  • overnight care and support, like staying at a carer's home for one night or more
  • day and evening support delivered from a carer's home
  • transition support, e.g. living with a carer until the age of 18 (this can be extended)
  • supporting patients at home recovering from hospital treatment
  • temporarily supporting service users whose regular care arrangements may have stopped
