Doncaster Needs You

Could you join the growing community of Shared Lives carers in Doncaster and change the lives of local people?

Doncaster is one of the fastest growing Shared Lives communities in the UK, with new people opening their homes every day, to provide a supportive, safe environment for adults with a care and support need.

Shared Lives is a bit like fostering, but for adults. Carers who come from all walks of life (no previous care experience is necessary) provide a space in their home either short term or long term, to help others become more independent, learn new skills, and feel safe in their community.

As a Shared Lives carer, you see the difference you make to people's lives every day. You receive a weekly income of between £250 and £550 per week, per person you support, and you get access to loads of exclusive benefits, such as shopping discounts, wellbeing advice service, award winning training, income tax incentives and more.

Plus, you decide the amount of hours/days you'd like to work, and get the peace of mind in knowing that the people you support are matched to you on things like lifestyle and hobbies, so that you can create a lasting and meaningful relationship.

If you'd like to support people to live fulfilling lives in Doncaster, we'd like to hear from you. Visit our Become a Shared Lives Carer page to fill out a quick enquiry and start your journey today.
