We are experts in Shared Lives, built on our experience and knowledge across the UK.
Our carer support team and carer champions support over 1,000 individual Shared Lives carers every year. Around 60 Shared Lives carers join our teleconferences each month to keep up to date and we guide local groups of carers to support each other on practical topics such as holidays, community resources, fair pay, and often just a friendly ear who understands.
As a member you’ll have access to our guidance on human rights, best practice for Shared Lives and our community forum, packed full of advice, guidance and a lively discussion board to connect with other Shared Lives carers across the UK.
We also offer:
• Free monthly teleconferences to talk with other Shared Lives carers and ask our carer support team directly about issues affecting you
• Meet others for support, friendship and fun. We offer practical support and advice to develop and maintain a Shared Lives carer group in your area.
• Local, regional and national meetings and events
