Shared Lives West Midlands

Get to know us

After taking part in a research study to explore how the Shared Lives model, could complement our existing resources, Camphill Village Trust established the Shared Lives West Midlands Scheme in March 2017.

The Stourbridge Community was chosen both for its urban location in supporting the recruitment of new Carers, and also to enable the new Scheme is able to connect to already established networks, access wider resources and take part in community social events.

Building connections

In September 2018, we began our contract to deliver a Shared Lives service in partnership Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council. Kate Morgan is the Registered Manager of Camphill Village Trust Shared Lives.

“Everyone has the right to enjoy Shared Lives, the difference that kindness, stable relationships and ordinary home life make is amazing. By joining a Shared Lives Scheme, caring people can build a paid career from their own home, doing a role they love.”

Throughout England there are about 12,000 people being supported through Shared Lives and across Dudley and the wider Black Country, we currently we supervise 38 households who provide Arrangements to people with a variety of additional and complex needs.

Working in partnership with Dudley Council, we are committed to expanding the service significantly across the region and providing supportive Arrangements to people who previously would have otherwise been referred to a long-term hospital or residential care establishments. Shared Lives has a long track record going back many years, as it enables individuals to remain in the community, where people are known to lead longer, healthier and happier lives.
