About Homesharing

Lightshare is a Homeshare service which brings together two individuals who can support one another with the aim of improving quality of life. An older individual who would like some companionship or help at home is matched with a kind, caring and trustworthy Homesharer.

A Homesharer provides up to ten hours of support each week and can support with cooking, shopping, light cleaning, outings, companionship, technical support, laundry, overnight presence and more.

In exchange for this help, the Householder provides the Homesharer with free accommodation – usually a spare room in a safe and comfortable living environment.

We provide a free service to Householders so there is no monthly charge for our service. We can understand that many of our service users are retired and by offering the room for free you may have a slight increase in expenses.

We welcome applications from Homesharers of all backgrounds provided you are trustworthy, reliable, understand the commitment of Homesharing and pass our interview process and security checks. There is a monthly fee for Homesharers which is £240pcm (£320 pcm for couples).

For more information on our Homesharing service or to apply please call 0330 111 4292 or click the Apply Now tab above. We look forward to speaking with you soon!
