Shared Lives & Short Breaks enables people requiring support to live in their community without having to live alone. Shared Lives carers support and include the person in their family and community life which, in many cases, can lead to the individual naturally becoming a permanent part of a supportive family.

The service provides both transitional and long term placements to people who require care and support because of their disability or condition. Our carers provide a safe, secure and stimulating family environment for the person to help them develop a sense of belonging within their community.

We enable people requiring support to live in their community without having to live alone. Our Shared Lives carers support and include the person in their family and community life and provide a safe, secure and stimulating family environment for the person to help them develop a sense of belonging within their community. Our service is used by people aged 16 and over with a wide range of disabilities, conditions and other support needs. This includes people with learning disabilities or mental health issues, older adults and young people being supported through transitional services. Every placement is unique, and the support provided is tailored to meet the individual needs of the person, whilst creating a natural and supportive family environment.
