The Homeshare UK network

We have grown the Homeshare UK network steadily since 2016 and have developed a tried and tested framework for safe and effective delivery. Homeshare UK provides support and expertise to our network members with a thriving and active network of practitioners delivering high-quality Homeshare programmes across the UK.

Homeshare offers a new and sustainable model for people to live more independently and take control of their lives through supporting one another.
