Shared Lives is a little bit like fostering, but with the big difference that it’s for people over the age of 18 in Wales who want to live as independently as possible. Shared Lives carers provide people with the practical and emotional support they need to live life the way they want to.

PSS is a social enterprise with a mission to help the people we support live their lives to the fullest.

Being a Shared Lives carer is a job that’s really flexible. You can support someone who comes to live with you at home, or
you can support someone during the daytime only. You can support up to three people, working hours that suit
you and fit around your family.

You’ll be self-employed, but we’ll be with you every step of the way and you’ll have your own personal team who will be there for you anytime you need us, even out of office hours.

To be a PSS Shared Lives carer you don’t need any previous caring experience. We’ll train you up to become one of the best carers in the West (and the East, the North and the South, just for the record). If you’ve got a big heart, a genuine nature, professionalism, an open mind and you’re determined, we’d like to hear from you.


Shared Lives carer

As a Shared Lives carer, it’s your job to support people to meet their
goals, in whatever ways they need you to. You can either support
someone while they live in your house with you and your family,
or you can support them just during the day.
You might be supporting someone to:
• Do practical things in everyday life like washing, going
to the loo or eating
• Look after their finances
• Look after their baby
• Get involved in their community
• Make new friends
• Travel the world
• Manage anxiety
• Get into education
• Learn how to bake
• Get their dream job
• Start a new life addiction-free
• Go out on their own for the first time
The possibilities are as unique as each of the people we support.
