Croydon Shared Lives

Shared Lives (previously called adult placement) is an established and successful way of helping adults who need support to live in our community. Shared Lives forms a significant part of the services offered by Croydon Social Services to meet the needs of vulnerable adults who live in the London Borough of Croydon.

We assess applicants and supervise carers within the scheme, who are committed to share their home, interests, skills and experiences, providing quality care and support to access the community and enhance the quality of life both inside and outside the home.

The scheme ensures good practice and safeguarding standards are met and maintained. We provide training for carers and the scheme is regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Supporting People.
