The dates for Shared Lives week are set: from Friday 15th June to Sunday 23rd June. Shared Lives week is one of the best opportinities we have, for promoting and spreading awareness of the unique way of life that Shared Lives represents. At Shared Lives Plus we've been thinking hard about which theme this year's Shared Lives week should focus on, and as your membership organisation we've based these considerations on our conversations with you.
Listening to your experiences of working and living as Shared Lives members, taking into account the tough landscape of social care in the UK currently and the fantastic work that has been done to grow and develop Shared Lives in spite of all the challenges, we have decided that Shared Lives week 2018 will be all about Fairness for our members.
Over the coming 8 weeks we will be creating and sharing a host of materials and resources with you and supporting you in arranging and making the most of local events, such as the Great Shared Lives picnic. We will also be working hard to campaign for greater fairness for our carer members. Watch this space.
