Gary's recovery from substance misuse with Shared Lives
Gary’s lived with his Shared Lives carer Liz since 2010. Before this he lived independently and struggled with periods of substance misuse, homelessness and self-neglect.
Gary says that Shared Lives has given him the opportunity to enjoy so many awesome experiences and really turn his life around. He’s just got back from three wonderful weeks in Spain and thanks Liz for supporting him to live his life to the fullest.
As a Shared Lives carer you can change someone's life and give them a more positive future.
