Shared Lives Plus is the UK network for Shared Lives and Homeshare. Our members are Shared Lives carers and workers, and Homeshare programmes.

Shared Lives is a radical form of care and support that centres on sharing home, family and community life. Its innovative approach sees Shared Lives carers share their own home and family life with an older or disabled person, as an alternative to traditional care services.

The postholder will:

  1. Support a communications assistant, raising awareness through the traditional media, trade press, and social media.

  2. Support a communications assistant to market membership to potential members, including those from under-represented groups.

  3. Ensure delivery of our publications, members’ magazine and regular bulletins.

  4. Promote engagement, participation and communication amongst existing members.

  5. Support the Shared Lives Plus team with effective internal communications.

  6. Contribute to the organisation’s growth and sustainability.

This role line manages two assistants and also involves hands-on delivery of communications support to a busy team, managing external and internal communications for Shared Lives Plus and its members. The postholder will support Shared Lives Plus in its work with both the Homeshare and Shared Lives sectors, working to raise awareness through the traditional media, trade press and social media and marketing membership to potential members including those from under represented groups as well as promoting engagement, participation and communication amongst existing members.
