Bedford Borough Council Shared Lives

Shared Lives Bedford  is a service that works with adults with support needs to assist them to access greater everyday life opportunities within the local community.

The underpinning philosophy in Shared Lives is about "Sharing home and family life" through the use of appropriate and suitable Shared Lives Carers.

Shared Lives Bedford achieves this by recruiting, training and supporting people to become Shared Lives Carers and working alongside people with support needs to identify the most suitable Shared Lives Carer match for them, their individual needs and aspirations.
