1 Householder plus 1 Homesharer = 1 Homeshare

When one person gives a spare room, and another offers up to 10 hours of social support in return.... that's a Homeshare.

Often people just need a little bit of support - shopping, gardening, cooking, whilst others - who could provide help, find it hard to get onto the property ladder or save for their tuition fees

Homeshare brings them together.It's a win-win!

If you think you could be a Householder (someone who provides a room) or a Homesharer (someone who provides a bit of support in return) then get in contact with the team below for further details.
