Homeshare UK sector report 2017

Publisher(s):

Shared Lives Plus

Publication year:

2017

This report draws information from surveys and case studies to look at the current status of the Homeshare sector for the period April 2016 to March 2017. Homeshare brings together two people with different needs to share a home for mutual benefit, such as an older Householder being matched with someone needing low cost accommodation who can provide low level support in exchange. The report provides information about the organisations delivering Homeshare, types of schemes, Homeshare matches and participants, and equality and diversity. It reports that demand for Homeshare continues to grow, with an increase in the numbers of people using Homeshare, the numbers of operating schemes and an increase in the number of enquiries. Anecdotal evidence collected from a small sample of family and friends of Householders, Householders and Homesharers also identified a number of benefits for participants, which included a reduction in loneliness, improved quality of life and re-engagement with local social networks.
