Hear from our Homesharers

Published on 19 February 2024 10:10 AM


Homeshare brings together older people who have spare rooms, with people who need affordable accommodation who are happy to chat and lend a hand. In this video, we talk to three of our matches about their experiences.


What is Homeshare?

Being able to remain comfortable, supported and safe at home is a priority for many people. Whether you live alone, are experiencing physical difficulties, or feel vulnerable living at home, having someone else sharing your home could make a real difference.

As a Householder, you welcome someone in to share your home. Within the agreement, you will benefit from low-level support around the house as well as some company at home. As a Homesharer you are not only offered an affordable place to live, but the opportunity to join a welcoming home. Deciding to share a home brings benefits for everyone involved! Our Homeshare Team work to find matches who suit each other’s needs, and will support both parties throughout.
