Shared Lives

Become part of a community of Shared Lives carers in Barnet

A Shared Lives carer shares their home and family life with a young person or adult who needs support to live an enjoyable life.

  • could you offer support in your home during the day? Plan fun activities and enable someone to reach their goal?
  • or would you consider offering the occasional overnight respite for family carers?
  • or do you have room in your heart and home for someone to move in with you for a few weeks, months or years?

Shared Lives carers give a helping hand to someone getting dressed, getting to doctors' appointments, making friends, cooking together or voting on your favourite TV show!

People visiting or moving in with Shared Lives carers may have been in foster care, have learning or physical disabilities, may be an older person with a frailty or dementia, or have mental ill health, or be leaving hospital after treatment.

If you’re caring in nature, have previously cared for people or you’re looking for a new paid opportunity at home, apply now to start a fresh journey that’ll enrich your life like never before!
