Shared Lives and Shared Days

What carers receive

A job that fits around your life!

Being a Shared Lives carer is really flexible. You can support up to three people, working hours that suit you and that fit around your family.

You can usually work as a carer while having another job. Some carers start by supporting one person alongside another non-caring job, find that they love being a Shared Lives carer, and gradually increase their hours supporting other people until they are a full-time Shared Lives carer.

Carers receive training and support. We have a Shared Lives forum that meets every month where you can meet with other carers and customers.

You will be self-employed, but we will be with you every step of the way, and you will have your own personal team who will be there for you anytime you need us.
