Homeshare offers a simple but effective solution to a range of social issues including isolation and loneliness amongst older people, lack of affordable housing options for the young and can also help communities by bridging the inter-generational divide.
Homeshare is relatively new in the UK but has proven to be a popular model across the US, Europe and Australia with schemes successfully operating in 14 countries worldwide.
Homeshare has been very successful for older people that need companionship, people with special needs, single mothers and for people that care for others.
Homeshare reduces the cost of support services by up to 80%.
