Shared Lives

Shared Lives is a scheme where you go and live with a family in their home and become a part of their family.

There are different types of Shared Lives placements:

  • Short Breaks (used to be called respite)
  • Long term placements (which means that you will be living with the family for a long time)
  • Short term placements (which means that you may only be staying for a few weeks)
