Definiton of Homeshare

Homeshare offers a simple, effective and low-cost way of meeting housing and support needs.

Homeshare can help people to live the lives they wish to live in their local community. It is a low cost preventative service, because it helps families and communities to provide more for each other rather than relying on expensive interventions by the state. It can bring people together across divides of age, ethnicity, class and culture.

Homeshare is a simple way of helping people to help each other. A Homeshare involves two people with different sets of needs, both of whom also have something to offer. Householders are people who have a home that they are willing to share but are in need of some help and support.

Homesharers are people who need accommodation and who are willing to give some help. Prudent matching of both groups gives the Householder the help and security they require and the Homesharer the home they seek, both at reasonable cost.

Householders must have a home or property that they own or rent and which is suitable to accommodate another person. Both parties must be willing and able to commit to the arrangement for an agreed length of time, although this commitment is not binding.
