Welcome to Homeshare UK

About HomeShare UK

We are the UK network for HomeShare schemes.

HomeShare brings together people with spare rooms with people who are happy to chat and lend a hand around the house in return for affordable, sociable accommodation. 

Together, Householders and HomeSharers share home life, time, skills and experience.

All our schemes carefully vet, match and oversee each unique HomeShare arrangement.

Use the map below to find your local scheme and see if HomeShare could be right you.

    Hear HomeSharers Florence and Alexandra talk about their experience of HomeShare so far.
    For more detailed enquiries please see our FAQ section or get in touch with your local scheme .

    Looking for affordable, sociable accommodation?

    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!

    Do you have a spare room?

    If you do, you can:

    • Give a young person a great start in life
    • Maintain your independence
    • Make new friends
    • Gain peace of mind for yourself and your loved ones
    • Share your skills...and learn new ones!

    Too often we separate generations of old and young. Homeshare brings them together in a really positive way so that the older person can retain their independence and the younger person can have somewhere affordable to live. True symbiosis.

    My Householder and I developed a strong bond of friendship based on respect, understanding and helping eachother out.  They are like my second family now.
