Barnsley Shared Lives Scheme

Description

Barnsley Shared Lives is a family based model of support we provide a range of support to vulnerable adults and young people from the age of 16 years. We offer long term, respite, day support and sessional, the support is provided by approved Shared Lives Carers who complete an assessment. The support is provided in the carers own home or in the community. The service is regulated and inspected by CQC and follows guidance set by Shared Lives Plus. We offer person centred care, promote independence, inclusion and choice for the people who use our service. All our carers receive training and support to ensure the care they provide is safe, effective, caring and responsive.

Barnsley Shared Lives are always looking to recruit experienced, caring individuals who can carry out the role of a Shared Lives Carer, for more information please contact us on the details given below.

We have videos of the experiences of our service and Shared Lives Carers.
