Become part of a community of Shared Lives carers in Birmingham

Inspected and rated
Care Quality CommissionA shared lives carer shares their home and family life with a young person or adult who needs support to live an enjoyable life.

  • Could you offer support for one or two days a week, or overnight stays to offer respite for family carers?
  • Or do you have room in your heart and home for someone to move in with you for a few weeks, months or many years?

Shared Lives carers could give a helping hand to someone getting dressed, getting to doctors' appointments, making friends, cooking together or voting for favourite dancers on Strictly!

People visiting or moving in with Shared Lives carers may have been in foster care, have learning or physical disabilities, may be an older person with a frailty or dementia, or have mental ill health.

If you’re caring natured, have previously cared for people or you’re looking for a new paid opportunity at home, apply now to start a fresh journey that’ll enrich your life like never before!

You don’t need any qualifications. We'll support you every step of the way.
