Shared Lives Wiltshire seeks people from RWB&C

25th January 2022, 9:01am | By alexadavies |

Do you have a spare room and a desire to make a real difference to somebody’s life?

Shared Lives Wiltshire is looking for people in the Royal Wootton Bassett & Cricklade Area who could offer space in their home to an adult with care or support needs.

As a Shared Lives carer, you would welcome an adult with care or support needs into your home on a short term or long-term basis. You would support them to develop their skills, independence, and social inclusion.

Carers can be families, couples or individuals, and we recruit people with a wide range of skill sets and life experiences.

No qualifications are needed, and carers could combine this role with other work commitments. However, a willingness to share your life with others, and provide care and support with enthusiasm, motivation and commitment is important.

As a Shared Lives carer, you could make a real difference to the people you support. Following an approval process, you will be paid a weekly fee for offering a room in your home (rented, owned or mortgaged), and you would work as a self-employed professional.

You will receive guidance and support from our team when you are matched with someone who suits your circumstances and lifestyle. This is to ensure that Shared Lives is an enjoyable, fulfilling and valuable experience for all.  A bit like Fostering for Adults!

* Wiltshire Council’s Shared Lives Scheme is registered with the Care Quality Commissions *

If you could support and care for an adult within your own home on a short-term or long-term basis, then we would like to hear from you!
