Knowsley Network and Shared Lives

Shared Lives

Our Shared Lives service recruits carers to provide care in their homes for disabled adults, older people and vulnerable people needing support.

For many adults placed with carers, this will be their first experience of being part of a loving family, and having the independence to live a fulfilling life in their local community.

Shared Lives carers can offer:

  • a permanent home as a long-term carer
  • short break support to give permanent carers a break

Knowsley Network (Supported Living)


Knowsley Network supports adults with learning and/or physical disabilities to live as independently as possible in their own homes. People are supported with all aspects of daily living including personal care, social activities and homemaking. The level of support varies from a few hours, up to 24 hours a day.
