Living with a family
How to access the service
Referrals to the service are made by social workers. If you want to use this service, you will need to make a financial contribution towards living costs.
How we assess carers
Carers are assessed for their suitability and must meet rigorous assessment, recruitment and reference requirements before they can offer their home to a vulnerable person.
Who can be a carer
All potential carers are aged over 21, live in Lewisham and have a suitable spare bedroom to offer. They are given payments, support and regular training.
How carers and vulnerable adults are matched
Carers and vulnerable adults are matched based on shared interests. Introductory visits are organised so that the carers and vulnerable adults can become familiar and comfortable with each other.
