Become a Shared Lives Carer Now
So, what is Shared Lives?
Shared Lives is a little bit like fostering, but with the big difference that it’s for people over the age of 16 (over 18 in Wales) who want to live as independently as possible.
Shared Lives carers provide people with the practical and emotional support they need to live life the way they want to. Our Shared Lives carers support people either while they live with them, or just for the day. They can also become a Shared Lives carer to continue supporting someone they foster after they turn 16 or 18.
We’ll be there to support you as a carer
At PSS we’ve got dedicated Shared Lives teams at each of our scheme locations to support you in your role as a Shared Lives carer.
