Shared Lives

Shared Lives is a care and support service for people aged 17 and over. It’s a bit like fostering – for adults. It feels like an ordinary life for someone who needs support. And doesn’t feel like a ‘job’ for you.

Over 10,000 Shared Lives carers in the UK share their home and family with someone who needs support. Working at home, you can earn between £350 - £690 a week with tax relief. Our carers get training, regular breaks and an amazing support network.
