What is Shared Lives?
Shared Lives schemes operate nationally, and we operate the service in the Surrey area. It helps you to find a safe and supportive home environment where you can live as part of a family. This might be for the long term, on a short-term basis or for respite care, so that your full-time carer can have a break.
Living in a Shared Lives family is good because it gives you:
- An independent life in your local community
- Family accommodation in a home that suits you
- Shared Lives carers that are matched to your needs and know your likes and dislikes
- Privacy, respect and choice
If you think you would like to stay in a Shared Lives carer’s home, or you would like to open your home to someone who needs a safe and supportive living environment, just click on the options above to find out more.
