Shared Lives - making better lives for our Warrington community.

What is Shared Lives?

“Being a Shared Lives companion is unique it isn’t like work, it has given me confidence and more awareness of life with disabilities and health conditions. If I can put a smile on someone’s face it’s been worth it, it’s so rewarding and the expenses are a real bonus!” – Shared Lives Companion

Catalyst Choices Shared Lives service is committed to supporting our Warrington community, and this doesn’t always mean direct care. We, as humans, are social creatures, and at Catalyst we believe that sharing and maintaining strong social bonds can have an immense impact on physical health and well-being…and it’s always nice to have someone to talk to!

Not everyone in our community has access to friends and family that they can connect with, and here at Catalyst we want to improve that! Shared Lives is where someone who needs a little extra support to live well, either moves in with an approved Shared Lives carer or regularly visits them for the day or weekend.

The service is very flexible and can work around whatever you need or have to offer!

Are you interested in being a Shared Lives Companion?

If you live in the Warrington area and are over the age of 18 you may be eligible to become a companion, you don’t need a background in social care, we are interested in people who are positive, up-beat and would like to give back to their community.

You can give as much or as little as you want, from a few hours a week, even the smallest gesture can have a significant impact on someone’s life.


Shared Lives is about putting people first, building strong relationships and creating a safe place to recover and live well.
