Shared Lives

The Shared Lives Service works with adults who need support due to disability, age or illness. 

Shared Lives supports people to develop meaningful friendships that enable them to live life to the full in their local communities. It can help them achieve goals such as going to college, develop travel skills, visit places outside Wigan and go on holiday.

Adults who need support are carefully matched with Shared Lives champions, who are local people with shared interests or simply someone that they get on well with.

Champions are recruited from local communities, local people with big hearts who want to make a difference and put something back into their local area, as part of The Deal.

Full training will be given and a free DBS check.
