Shared Lives

The Shared Lives service helps connect people who need respite, day support or longer term help with people who can provide professional and personalised support, usually in their home.

Offering something very different from residential care services, our shared lives carers are supported with a vigorous assessment, clearance and ongoing training programme.

The service is regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission, and is rated as Good and is based at the Phoenix Centre in Blackpool.
