People encouraged to take part in HSE home share scheme

People are encouraged to take part in the HSE’s home sharing scheme in Sligo and Leitrim.

It involves caring for and sharing your home with a child or an adult with a disability and/or autism.

The scheme is flexible with host families able to choose to offer a morning, afternoon or day a week or longer if they wish.

Ali Crowe Bergin, a social worker with the home share scheme in Sligo/Leitrim explains how the initiative works.
