Could you be a Shared Lives carer?

Come along to our event at the Civic Offices, Conference Room A in Guildhall Square in Portsmouth on Thursday 19 October from 1.30pm to learn more about Shared Lives.

Shared Lives offers the opportunity for people who need a bit of extra help to live the life they choose. Carers share their home life with service users, supporting them with cooking, budgeting and laundry. They also help people get involved in their local community - whether that's shopping, swimming, bowling or going to the theatre.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re single, an older couple or have children - Shared Lives households come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you are working elsewhere or not you could also receive an income of between £290 and £400 a week for being a Shared Lives carer.
