A Homesharer is someone who is looking for somewhere affordable to live in Oxford city and likes the idea of sharing a home with another person. They may:
- be a key worker or a postgraduate student
- be struggling to afford to rent in Oxford
They should also be willing to provide up to 10 hours of help around the home including some companionship.
What are the costs?
From March 2018 the monthly fee paid to Homeshare Oxford by Householders is £100, which works out at just over £3 per day. The monthly fee paid to Homeshare Oxford by Sharers is £200. These fees pay for the setting up of the Homeshare arrangement, regular ongoing support from the local Homeshare team and enable Homeshare Oxford to be run as a sustainable scheme. The Sharer also pays a contribution to the Householder to cover a proportion of household bills.
