What is Shared Lives?

The Vale of Glamorgan Shared Lives has been established for over 20 years. We support individuals with varying needs including learning disabilities, physical disabilities, autism, mental health issues and dementia by matching them with a Carer. Our assessed and trained Carers then open their own family home to the person needing support.

How we can help you

Shared lives aim to enable people with a disability to experience ordinary life, with real relationships rather than receive a service.
