Charity seeks Paid Carers for new Shared Lives Scheme

The charity Camphill Village Trust (CVT) is currently looking to recruit Paid Carers to its new Shared Lives Scheme, that is being launched in the Black Country this Summer.

Shared Lives is sometimes described like ‘foster care for adults who may be vulnerable or have a disability’, but it’s so much more than that. With 92% of all Schemes being rated as Good or Outstanding by CQC, Shared Lives is an innovative model of care, that enables people to stay in their own communities and provides a viable alternative to residential, nursing or hospital care.

As a Shared Lives Carer you are ‘carefully matched’ to support a person from within your own home, where they develop the skills to be as independent as possible and lead an ‘ordinary life’ at the heart of the neighbourhood. The person then becomes more confident and develops a sense of belonging, using their social and wider family networks for extra support.

You must be over 18 years of age but don’t need any qualifications or experience, just the right values, commitment and of course…..a spare bedroom. If you don’t own your own home, you will need to ask your landlord’s permission to use your property as a Shared Lives Arrangement.

CVT will provide relevant training and once approved, will give on-going supervision and support to ensure that the highest quality of care is maintained throughout each Shared Lives Arrangement. An enhanced DBS Check and references are required. Training will take place in your own home, via e-Learning and also as a group at CVT’s community hub in Stourbridge. The Assessment process takes about three months.

As a Shared Lives Carer you can be paid up to £600 per week depending on the level of support you provide to the Person who comes to stay with you on a long-term or respite basis, as well as receive significant tax breaks.

To find out more about becoming a Shared Lives Carer for CVT, please go to ww.cvt.org.uk/sharedlives or call Dean Barnshaw, Shared Lives Development Manager on 07984 896010. Email dean.barnshaw@cvt.org.uk
