Help fund our carer helpline, peer support service, or ambassadors programme

  • A central advice team who provide support to carers across the UK. Shared Lives Plus helps our members to come together to develop the sector to survive and thrive, influencing local and national policy makers
  • Carer champions – The champions are all current Shared Lives carers, who share their home with vulnerable people. They will cover a dedicated phone support service for carers allowing a unique peer support programme. One-to-one support to Shared Lives carers is vital to maintain the integrity, quality, and safety of Shared Lives.
  • Ambassadors- one of our core principles is to ensure the voices of those with lived experiences is heard to co-design our services. Recruitment of Ambassadors, who are current or recent users of Shared Lives services will mean they can provide peer support, promote the service and be involved in the coproduction of local Shared Lives services.
