How do I access this support ?
We have now secured funding for three years to run Shared Lives Shetland.
We are at the begining of recruiting people to work in this different way and from across Shetland.
Once we have people contracted we will publicise how you can be referred.
This will be a small scale service in the begining and grow as the benefits of working this way are seen by more people to be a natural and very rewarding way to look at how we do the work we love and support people to have the level of community involvement they wish. .
People will have a social worker who will discuss all support available as part of the existing systems.
Look out for announcements later in the year.
