Shared Lives services are designed to support adults with care and support needs who need a helping hand. This service is available to all Adult Social Care  service users.

The scheme matches an adult who has care and support needs with an approved Shared Lives Carer. The carers share their regular family and community life with the adult to provide the help they need, this can include social and recreational activities, washing and dressing (personal care) and preparing food. Shared Lives support can vary from a day a week, a day a month, overnight stays or living with someone for a short while or permanently.
