About Homeshare UK

We are the UK network for Homeshare. We believe Homeshare has the potential to change the face of social care in the UK. How? Homeshare enables two unrelated people to share a home for mutual benefit. The homesharer benefits from low cost accommodation, while the householder receives companionship and practical help in and around their home.

Benefits of Homeshare:

  • helps people who need support such as older people, stay in their own homes for longer
  • provides affordable accommodation for younger people or key workers, at a time of record housing shortages and high rent.

Watch this video for an introduction to Homeshare and how it works. For more detailed enquiries please see our FAQ section or contact us on Contact@HomeshareUK.org
