Become a Shared Lives host

The most rewarding thing you'll ever do

Shared Lives hosts open their homes to support adults with learning disabilities, mental health conditions, physical disabilities or dementia. The host will provide long term, shortbreak, day support and transition placements.

For hosts it:

  • provides a flexible, interesting job with a fantastic work-life balance
  • offers great opportunities for skills development
  • lets you be self-employed, with support from our team
  • is well paid.

Having experience in care work or through personal experience would be an advantage, but full training and ongoing support is provided.
