We are pleased to publish the State of the Nation report for Wales 2018. Despite significant and continuing budgetary pressures, Shared Lives has grown in Wales. 

The number of people being supported by Shared Lives has increased by 6%, and Shared Lives carers have increased by 15%. Several schemes, both independent and local authority run, are performing exceptionally well - leading the way in supporting older people or working within the innovative Health Initiative. The report describes the excellent work these schemes, with support from Welsh government, are doing - and describes the potential for Shared Lives to change many more lives and generate sognificant long-term cost savings to the social care budget. 

The executive summary provides a snapshot of the keymessages, whilst the full report gives a detailed breakdown of the state of Shared Lives in Wales.
