Homeshare Householder

Homeshare York matches an older homeowner (the ‘Householder’) with a younger person (the ‘Homesharer’).

Being a Homeshare Householder

Homeshare York can match you at no cost with someone who can offer 10 hours' support a week in return for sharing your home.

A Homesharer could help with practical tasks such as:

  • cleaning
  • shopping
  • gardening

You might just like someone to chat to or watch your favourite TV programme with.

A Homesharer can also provide:

  • a reassuring overnight presence
  • extra support to help you remain independent in your own home

In return you’d be offering accommodation to someone who's struggling to:

  • get on the property ladder
  • find affordable rental accommodation
