Becoming a carer

Shared Lives carers are people from all backgrounds. They can be part of a family or couple or living alone. As a Shared Lives Carer, you do not need experience or special qualifications. You will receive appropriate training to help you. It usually takes three to six months to become an approved Shared Lives Carer.

Shared Lives Carers enjoy new friendships, know they are doing something worthwhile and receive payments to cover their costs.

If you have the time in your life and the space in your home to become a Shared Lives Carer, we want to hear from you.
