Homeshare West

Homesharing is about friendship, mutual respect and support. The costs are minimal. The Householder and Sharer benefit from each other’s company, gaining security and independence in equal measure. Homesharing matches someone who needs a small amount of help to live independently in their own home with someone who has a housing need and can provide appropriate support and company.

About Homeshare

Homeshare helps people to stay independent in the places they love to live and builds community connections. It is a mutually beneficial arrangement with both people having something they need and something to give.

Homeshare brings two people together to share a home; typically, someone who needs help to live independently in their own home (a householder) is matched with someone who has a housing need (a homesharer). In return for affordable accommodation, the homesharer provides around ten hours of support per week to the householder.
