If you are 18 years of age and over and have been assessed as needing a service then Shared Lives may be for you.
If, following your assessment it is agreed that you would benefit from the kind of support Shared Lives can offer, your Social Worker will contact the Shared Lives Scheme. This is called a referral. Once a referral has been received, a Shared Lives Officer will look to see if there is a suitable carer to support you. This is called the 'matching process'.
If you would like more information about the referral and matching and introductions processes please contact the Shared Lives Scheme.
