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

Being a Homeshare householder

For a small monthly contribution Homeshare York will match you 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, and that little bit of extra support so you can remain independent in your own home.

In return you’d be offering a viable option for someone who is struggling to get on the property ladder or find affordable rental accommodation.

Homeshare householder eligibility

Check to see whether you're eligible to be a homeshare householder and request a call back from the Homeshare Coordinator to get more information.

Homeshare enquiry form

All Homesharers undertake an extensive interview and vetting process so you can be confident that we’ve found the right person for you. We’ll support you at every stage of the match and will continue to do so once you’re living together to make sure everything’s going well.
