Shared Lives Plus is the UK membership charity for more than 6,000 Shared Lives carers, 150 Shared Lives schemes and a growing network of over 25 local Homeshare organisations. Our vision is a kinder, stronger society built on sharing our lives and our homes. We help build communities where everyone lives a full life, regardless of the support they need. We do this by turning Shared Lives and Homeshare into thriving, mainstream options, with all the right structures in place to support and guide who want to share their lives and homes.
In Shared Lives, the person moves into the carer’s own home either for short breaks or long-term as a place to settle and feel they belong. Key to the success of all arrangements is the careful recruitment and matching processes, carried out by the local scheme, which involves all parties in a personalised decision-making process.
Shared Lives Plus secured £300k from the government Community Coronavirus Support Fund, distributed by the National Lottery Community Fund, which helped develop new ways to recruit, assess and train Shared Lives carers that is sustainable through a pandemic or lockdown situation but will also bring additional benefits of online working and accessibility to schemes and members.
We are now looking for someone to maximise the potential of the portal by ensuring as many schemes as possible sign up to the arrangement, co-ordinate the roll out of the online recruitment and training platforms to the wider Shared Lives membership.
