(1 Vote)

We are delighted to be able to share an in depth review of the Shared Lives sector in Scotland over the last year.

The report provides a statistical breakdown of the number of Shared Lives carers and people being supported, as well as information about the demographics of support needs and different types of Shared Lives arrangements. 

But behind the statistics, it tells the stories of real people whose lives have been changed by being supported in a Shared Lives arrangement. 

The State of Shared Lives in Scotland 2018 paints a bright picture of the strength and robustness of Shared Lives in Scotland, where the model has grown again despite difficulties in the social care landscape.
