Shared Lives Plus
Shared Lives Plus is a membership charity for a kinder, stronger society built on sharing our lives and our homes. We build communities where everyone lives a full life, regardless of the support they need. Our members are 6,000 Shared Lives carers, 150 Shared Lives schemes and a growing network of over 25 local Homeshare organisations. We are funded by grants, membership, strategic advice and supporters.
Shared Lives carers share their family and community life with adults who need some support to live independently, including disabled adults, older people with dementia, people with mental health problems, and others.
Homeshare matches those who need some companionship or a little help to carry on living in their own home, with someone who is willing to give a little help and needs accommodation. Micro-enterprises are very small community services, offering activities, transport, hot meals, advocacy or home help.
