Notes

Lifeshare's flagship service, CARDS, targets vulnerable and marginalized young people aged 16-25 in Manchester, particularly those who are homeless (or at risk of becoming so) and those at risk of being sexually exploited.

This project is led by Judy Vickers and aims to achieve five core outcomes:

  • to ensure all clients have safe, secure and stable accommodation so that they can be free from illness and acts of physical violence;
  • to achieve financial stability that lessens the effects of hardship and eliminates incentives that encourage risky activities such as drug dealing or commercial sex work;
  • to develop the positive mental wellbeing necessary to avoid a chaotic lifestyle and prepare the foundations for independent living and employment;
  • to help clients reach good physical health that will enable them to develop into independent citizens without being held back by preventable illness;
  • to increase employability so that they can eventually reach independence and self-sufficiency.

We achieve these aims through activities that build confidence and self-esteem so the service users can feel empowered to take control of their lives, such as our Life Shares Art project.
