We have produced a new film to celebrates our Shared Lives service and help us recruit 30 new Shared Lives carers. Watch the film here Shared Lives – Bolton Cares

The film tells the heartwarming story of Melissa and Steven and shows the very special bond they share.

Shared Lives is about families sharing their homes to support and care for adults with a variety of needs including adults with Learning disabilities, Autism, mental health issues, older adults with a dementia diagnosis and young people in transition to adulthood.

Being a Shared Lives carer is fulfilling and can be financially rewarding. You could earn up to £500 per week and get great tax benefits.

Our Shared Lived carers are passionate and dedicated people from all walks of life. They are committed to making a difference to someone’s life. Meet some of our carers here Meet some of our Shared Lives Carers – Bolton Cares

Lica Marchant Registered Manager for Shared Lives said.

“Our new film has been produced to share information and inspire people to become Shared Lives Carers. Shared Lives is an amazing service that really makes a difference to people’s lives and supports people to lead full, independent and active lives.

We are looking for carers of all ages and backgrounds who have a commitment to caring and can give someone a positive future. If this is you, please contact us for an informal chat.
