Shared Lives Bedford
Shared Lives Bedford is a service supporting
adults with learning disabilities to access greater everyday life
opportunities within the local community. We achieve this by
recruiting, training & supporting Shared Lives Carers
& working alongside people with learning disabilities, to look
at the most suitable match for them and their individual
needs. Read more about Shared Lives Bedfordshire.
Do you care for an adult with a learning disability?
Caring for a family member with a learning
disability is usually a lifelong experience. You may live
with the person you care for, or they may live somewhere else. The
Adult Leaning Disability Duty Teams can support you, as well as the
person you care for. Read more about the support available.
