Hi I’m Lyn, Support and Engagement Manager for Shared Lives Plus.
Alongside my colleagues in the Shared Lives carer support team I provide our Shared Lives carer members with resources, training, information, advice and one-to-one support.
Part of my role is to help to make sure that the voices of our Shared Lives carer members feed into and influence everything we do. Communication between members is vital and I support our Shared Lives carer members to talk to, support and learn from each other.
I do this by supporting the development of Shared Lives carer networks and peer support groups across the UK. I then work with the groups and networks to identify issues and concerns, analyse them and agree on actions to address these problems.
