Short Breaks for Adults with an Intellectual Disability, an initiative supported by Sunbeam House Services (SHS).
The Home Share Service supports people in the community who volunteer to support an adult with an intellectual disability for short periods of time and include them in their day to day routines e.g. shopping, football matches etc. All volunteers are welcome whether married, single, cohabiting or retired. There are no limits once they are willing and meet the assessment criteria. Expenses will be covered.
Aims of the Home Share
• To provide short breaks of ½ nights per month to adults with intellectual disabilities.
• To expand the person’s social networks and experiences.
• To give natural families a break from caring & supporting
