Haringey Shared Lives
Shared Lives Haringey are recruiting carers to offer homes to an additional 70 people.
Do you want to earn up to £500 per week helping to transform the lives of vulnerable people?
Shared Lives Haringey is a scheme where local residents open their homes to help adults with learning disabilities, mental health needs and physical disabilities live and be cared for in the community.
By sharing their home, family and community life with someone who needs support, Shared Lives carers help those who need support to live independently.
To get an insight into Shared Lives please read the story of carer Lynn Stevens: Shared Lives Case Study.

Carers are recruited and trained by the scheme. An independent panel of professionals and service user representatives approve the individual to provide care and support, before being carefully matched with service users.
Through permanent and short-term placements in family homes, the scheme allows people to enjoy extra support and companionship without the need for traditional care.
