We support people to live the life they want via our Shared Lives or Short Breaks services. With Shared Lives, a young person or adult who needs support moves in with or regularly visits an approved Shared Lives carer. This will happen after they have got to know each other and we have matched them for compatibility. Together, they share family and community life. Short breaks is a respite service where you can stay somewhere else for a night or few days to relax and have fun.
These service offers a real alternative to other forms of support and accommodation for disabled people, autistic people, older people or those with other support needs, whatever their age.
The aim of our home and living services are to encourage our customers to gain confidence, have greater independence and develop skills and lasting relationships.
