Homeshare Project

What is Homeshare?

Homeshare enables two people to share a home for mutual benefit. Typically, an older person living in their own home with a room to spare will be carefully matched with a younger person who will provide an agreed amount of support in exchange for good quality, affordable accommodation.

Do you have a spare room? (Householder)

If you do, you can:

  • Give a room to someone who needs accomodation.
  • Maintain your independence
  • Make new friends
  • Gain peace of mind for yourself and your loved ones
  • Share your skills...and learn new ones!


Looking for affordable, sociable accommodation? (Housesharer)

Do you want to:

  • Give something back to your community
  • Live in comfortable, affordable housing
  • Make new friends
  • Share your skills...and learn new ones!

Benefits of Homeshare

  • People to stay living independently at home for longer.
  • Provides affordable accommodation at a time of record housing shortages and high rent.
  • Both people’s families have peace of mind knowing that their relatives have secure accommodation and companionship.
