Shared Lives week 2018 in your area!

Sunderland Shared LivesUp and down the UK, an inspirational army of Shared Lives carers and schemes are celebrating their role in helping thousands of people who need extra support to live ordinary lives across the UK this week.

Over 14,000 people who need help to live well either visit or live with 10,000 approved Shared Lives carers. They share family and community life together, enabling people who need support to stay in the area, make new friends and recover from hospital or live an ordinary life, instead of being in a care home.

Join in The Great Shared Lives Picnic

From Great Shared Lives Picnics, to walks along the beach, discos to tea parties, take a look at our Shared Lives week calendar to find out what’s happening near you, or give your local scheme a ring to get involved.
