Whether you'd like to offer long-term, emergency, short breaks or day support to someone, you can have any style of home and you do not need to own it. 

You must be a Bury resident to be a Bury Shared Lives carer.


As a Bury Shared Lives carer you will need:

  • to offer your time, patience and enthusiasm! You will be supporting someone to learn important skills, develop friendships and try new things.
  • to be able to welcome someone into your home, to share the house as a member of your family, for both residential support and for day support.
  • to offer a comfortable, furnished bedroom which the person will have sole use of during a long-term, emergency or respite stay.
