Shared care

Shared Care offers short term care to adults who are unable to live on their own (without a full-time carer) and the people who care for them.  The care can vary in length from a few hours to a maximum of two weeks at a time and is provided by people we have approved to be shared carers.
The Shared Care Scheme also provides short term breaks for children and young people with disabilities, by linking them with approved carers who look after them for short periods of time; from a few hour to a weekend in a month.
