Shared Lives Plus is the UK network for family-based and small-scale ways of supporting adults. Our members are Shared Lives carers and workers, and Homeshare programmes. Shared Lives used to be known as Adult Placement.
Our members are individual Shared Lives carers, Shared Lives schemes, Homeshare providers and micro-enterprises. They use different approaches to enable people to achieve goals such as:
•being in control of their services and their lives.
•pursuing ordinary lives within their chosen families and relationships.
•being valued by their communities and feeling like they belong.
