Our carers are the heart of our service, so the recruitment and selection of new carers is an in-depth process which includes a detailed assessment and an enhanced DBS check.
Shared Lives Carers are expected to participate in pre-assessment and ongoing training as well as other activities relevant to the role of a Shared Lives Carer.
From the moment you decide to become a Leicestershire Shared Lives Carer we will offer:
- Induction and training to become a Shared Lives Carer
- A dedicated support worker to guide you through the process, as well as ongoing support
- Careful matching of clients with you (and your family)
- Access to training and learning materials to enable you to develop as a carer
Our carers have access to advice and support 24/7 from the Shared Lives team and our out-of-hours service.
If you think you have what it takes to change a life and are looking for a flexible, challenging and hugely rewarding role, we’d love to hear from you.
