West Berkshire Shared Lives is a scheme run by West Berkshire Council, which cares for vulnerable adults in a family home.
Such adults are embraced by a local family, where a carer is paid to look after them. This can be for long-term care, or in a respite situation to provide a break or holiday to existing carers.
There are full details of the scheme here on West Berkshire Council’s website.
The scheme is based at the Phoenix Resource Centre in Newtown Road, Newbury.
