Shared lives scheme

Many adults can’t live on their own without help and support from others. This may be because they have a physical or learning disability, mental health needs or because they are older and have become frail.

The Shared Lives scheme offers these vulnerable adults the chance to live with families who can offer the support and encouragement they need to live as independently as possible.

Shared Lives can provide people with a permanent home, a short respite stay, or day care in an ordinary home setting in the community.
