Myself and my wife are looking at getting into shared lives, we both have experience, some of my family members work with shared lives and I grew up helping my parents as they both fostered for 18 years so plenty of experience.
The backstory to my question is…
We live in a 2 bedroom flat with Hampshire housing association (maisonette style, one up one down and we’re on the top) we have 2 bedrooms with my daughter age 4 sharing our bedroom to give our 9 year old son his own space.
We’re not eligible for a 3 bed property until September this year and even then it could take another year to get a property using the bidding system.
So we don’t have the space to have a shared lives placement and are keen to know if the council or shared lives themselves can help with this?
Any comments welcome!
