Become a Shared Lives Carer and change the life of a vulnerable adult...

 

We are recruiting Carers who can offer support and companionship to help a vulnerable adult reach their potential and lead a fulfilling life.

 

Could you offer:

 

  • Full-time care – where the adult lives with you in your home and is treated like family. Pay varies between £144.66 per week – £240.60 P/W depending of the level of need of the individual you support. You would also receive Rent and contributions towards utilities and food provisions, approx. £118 per week.

 

  • Overnight/respite care – where the adult stays in your home for a short period of time to give their permanent carers a break. Pay varies between £41.58 per night - £48.16 (you would not be required to stay awake during the night).

 

  • Day support – you would provide support from your home and support an adult to take part in social and leisure activities, out in the community. Pay varies between £20.79 - £24.08 per half session (3.5 hrs) or £41.58 - £48.16 per session (4 – 6 hrs).

 

Although carers are self-employed, they are recruited and supported by the Shared Lives Scheme.

 

We offer ongoing training and support to all of our Carers:
