About Shared Lives South West
Shared Lives South West (formerly known as SWAPS – the South West Adult Placement Scheme) was set up in 2004. The organisation is a registered charity and is registered with the Care Quality Commission. We specialise in the provision of Shared Lives services and offer a range of long term, short break and day services. We are able to support people with a learning disability, mental health needs, older people, people with dementia and parents with a learning disability.
Shared Lives South West operates in the four local authority areas of Devon, Torbay, Cornwall and Plymouth. We currently support over 300 service users through our network of 200 approved Shared Lives carers. We have offices in Kingsteignton in Devon, Scorrier in Cornwall and Plymouth city centre.
