Is Shared Lives for me?

Shared Lives suits many people - over 14,000 people already enjoy visiting or living with a Shared Lives carer.

When you choose who supports you, with the help of your local scheme, you and your Shared Lives carer, and their friends and family, often become friends - as well as getting the professional support you need.

Shared Lives carers support people from all walks of life.

You could visit or move in with a Shared Lives carer and their family, when you are looking for support during a life change:

or for longer term support:

  • have a learning or physical disability
  • experience dementia
  • mental ill health
  • or want to live with your child while needing care yourself.
