Friday, 15. June 2018, United Kingdom, Shared Lives week 2018!

Shared Lives week celebrates Shared Lives carers and schemes across the UK! With hundreds of events happening this week, it's a great time to find out how people like you are opening up their homes and lives to others who need support - for a short or a long time - sometimes coming out of hospital, sometimes with a learning disability, mental ill health, young people, or people who have experienced domestic violence. Together living ordinary lives - maybe on a street near you!

Shared Lives is great for people who would like to live in an ordinary home with people they’ve chosen to live with. It’s flexible, consistent and made to suit you. It could be for an overnight break, for a few weeks (for example, if you’ve been discharged from hospital, or your main carer needs a break), or for as long as you both enjoy living together.
Your local scheme will help you choose and individually match you with a trained Shared Lives carer. You will have time to get to know each other and become part of each other’s circle of friends and family.
Shared Lives is inspected and consistently rated one of the safest and highest quality forms of care across the UK. It’s cheaper than traditional care homes and Shared Lives carers are more consistent than other kinds of support.
