ategi Shared Lives Haringey
The ategi Shared Lives Haringey Scheme is always recruiting local residents who are willing to open their homes so that adults with Learning Disabilities, Physical Disabilities, Brain Injuries, Older People and mental ill-health, can be supported in the community.
The scheme recruits, trains and assesses potential carers and their families, who can provide - within their own homes - support to people who need care and assistance.
By sharing their home, family and community life either in a long-term or short-term arrangement, the scheme ensures that the people supported can live a more fulfilling life and learn more independent skills without the need for traditional care.
To get an insight into Shared Lives please read the story of carer Lynn Stevens: Shared Lives Case Study.
How does the scheme recruit suitable carers?
First, we conduct a thorough assessment to see if you are suitable and then we will train you.
Once the assessment process is completed, an independent panel of professionals and service user representatives will review all potential carers assessments. Your skills, abilities, experience, background and the suitability of your property are reviewed and after this has been done, they may approve you to become an approved Shared Lives carer.
The scheme reviews your suitability each year, and every 2 years an independent panel of professionals and service users representatives will need to re-approve you.
You will need to take a refresher training course every 3 years.
Once you are approved, the scheme will carefully match you with service users to provide them with the care and support they require.
You can earn up to £520 per week while helping to transform the lives of vulnerable people.
You may have people with long-term or short-term arrangements in your family home. We will make monthly monitoring visits and conduct 6-monthly reviews to make sure that vulnerable adults are getting the support they require without the need for traditional care.
