Homeshare brings together older people with spare rooms (householders) and people who are happy to chat and lend a hand around the house (homesharers) in return for affordable, sociable accommodation. It’s the first of its kind in the UK and impressively relieving the government of its housing and social care crisis.
Homeshare is part of the Shared Lives Plus network, and for that reason it falls into the same brand family. The two organisations were not aligned graphically.
