Homeshare is a fantastic model that brings people together. Most commonly, Homeshare matches an older person who has a spare room and needs some help to live independently in their own home with a younger person who needs an affordable place to live. People are carefully matched together by a local Homeshare provider and in return for a minimum of 10 hours of support each week the home sharer receives safe and low cost accommodation. Homeshare is based on the security of a welcoming home environment which helps to reduce loneliness and isolation and gives younger people a start in life.
Although Homeshare is flourishing across the UK, there are no Homeshare services available in Norfolk. So, we are asking for your help to build Homeshare in Norfolk to help tackle the housing crisis and cut down on loneliness and isolation. To help us build Homeshare in Norfolk, we need to hear from you.
Please take part in our short survey to help us understand what you think about Homeshare in Norfolk. The survey is anonymous and will only take a few minutes of your time to complete.
We would love to hear from you if you are:
