Supportmatch Homeshare Service

Supportmatch is part of a registered (non-profit) limited company. We exist to match those who need support with those who can give it.

The householder remains in their own home whilst providing their spare room to a carefully selected homesharer usually for a period of 6-12 months. The homesharer provides an agreed level of support, companionship and security.The concept is a win-win for all concerned.

Supportmatch offers a simple but effective home-share solution to resolve both a housing problem for single people or students and a support requirement by older people or those with particular physical or emotional support needs.

This service is also very valuable for carers who are willing to give a room for the assistant/homesharer.
