Shared Lives: providing a home for vulnerable people

Shared Lives and Croydon Lodgings for Families.


We need people in Croydon with one or more spare bedrooms to rent to vulnerable people and support them to live more fulfilled lives in our community. 

You'll be self-employed as a care professional, with flexible working and a regular income. You'll also receive training and support from us. This is an established scheme with an Outstanding rating from the Care Quality Commission

You can provide support for either:

There are also 2 limited schemes within Shared Lives:

  • Enhanced Lives supports adults with mental health needs for short time periods
  • Supported Living supports adults with learning disabilities, physical disabilities or mental health needs to live semi-independently
