This St David’s Day we’re celebrating the successful launch of three Homeshares across Wales, in Swansea, Pembrokeshire and Gwynedd, offering more people the opportunity to live sociably and affordably, whatever their age.
The programmes aim to tackle key issues in society such as loneliness and isolation as well as the housing crisis. In Wales 54% of people aged 60-74 and 49% of people 75+ years, said they felt lonely sometimes (ONS) but they want to stay living at home for longer. Younger people are being priced out of the villages, towns, and cities they want to live in, for work or study.
Older people living alone will be matched with those seeking affordable accommodation by the three Welsh Homeshare programmes.
