Our aim is that everyone who comes to live with a Shared Lives carer is supported to live their life how they want and helped to reach their goals and ambitions. Our Shared Lives carers will support you to be as independent as possible and to do the things you want to do. They will include you in all aspects of their family life.
You will tell us what you want to achieve and what you like to do and we will make sure the family carer understands this and helps you to make it happen.
You will have your own bedroom and share the rest of the home with the family.
You will be able to become part of your local community and join in things in the place where you live.
You can make new friends and be supported to keep in touch with the people who are important to you.
You can learn every day things round the house like cooking, cleaning, laundry and managing your money, which might help you if you want to live independently in the future.
