New posts to help us grow Shared Lives

It’s been a few weeks since my last post, partly because we’ve been busy preparing to grow our work. We’ll be making a major announcement about that next week, but in the meantime, we are advertising two new posts:

Director of Support and Development Salary £50,000 per annum. Location flexible within England.

Development Officer (Young people in transition). This national post will work with local Shared Lives schemes and Shared Lives carers to develop family-based Shared Lives for young disabled people aged 16+ in transition to adulthood. Currently around 150 young disabled people use Shared Lives but there is scope for that number to increase significantly, based on the learning from those successful arrangements and building new links with the children’s sector.
