Wigan Council Shared Lives Service

Become a Shared Lives Champion and make a huge difference to the life of a vulnerable adult by offering support to access the community and engage in activities.

Shared Lives support people to develop meaningful friendships that enable them to live life to the full in their local communities.

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, good people who want to make a difference and put something back into their local area, as part of The Deal.

Shared Lives Champions receive generous expenses, full training and continuous support from the dedicated staff team.

Shared Lives welcome people from a wide variety of backgrounds with different skills and life experiences. We focus on the qualities of local people, not their qualifications.

Can you spare a few hours a week? Are you ready to make a difference to someone's life? What are you waiting for?!
