Shared Lives can suit many kinds of people - in fact over 14,000 people already enjoy visiting or living with a Shared Lives carer. As you choose each other, with the support of your local scheme, you often become friends - as well as getting the professional support you need.
You could be looking for support during a life change – so you can leave hospital, rebuild your life after domestic violence, or for longer term support – if you’re a young person looking for your first home after your family or care home, experience dementia or mental ill health, or want to live with your child while needing care yourself.
