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

  • Householder has a spare room and could benefit from support and companionship
  • Homesharer is happy to provide 10 hours of support per week in exchange for accommodation

A Homeshare match is beneficial by providing:

  • help with practical tasks

  • an overnight presence (the Homesharer)

Our homeshare coordinator will:

  • facilitate every match
