Reasons to become a Shared Lives carer

You can make a real difference to people’s lives as a Shared Lives carer.

Shared Lives is a flexible paid way of life and isn’t just a regular job in care. As a Shared Lives carer, you will support someone who you have got to know and chosen to care for, who has also chosen you.

Many Shared Lives carers say it’s like having a bigger family, and that seeing a person grow and build their independence is hugely rewarding.

You’ll be making a huge difference to someone, by being yourself in your own home.
