The team from Knowsley’s Shared Lives service will be out and about in a bid to recruit more Shared Lives carers.
The scheme, which is run by Knowsley Council, recruits carers to provide home-based care for disabled adults and older people needing support.
The Shared Lives team are encouraging people to come along to their latest recruitment fayre at Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park, Longview Drive, Huyton on Tuesday, 20 February, between 5pm and 7pm to find out more.
Visitors to the fayre will hear that there are lots of ways they can get involved with the Shared Lives scheme. They can offer a permanent home to someone, or short break support to give permanent carers a break. Recruits will receive payment of between £280 and £445 a week, extensive training and 24/7 support.
Both families and individuals of any age can get involved with Shared Lives – which offers a great opportunity for anyone seeking a new challenge, or maybe approaching retirement.
