What is Homeshare?

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.

Benefits of Homeshare:

  • helps you stay independently at home for longer (Householders)
  • provides affordable accommodation at a time of record housing shortages and high rent (Homesharers)
  • gives you and your loved ones peace of mind
