How we can help

A house share with people other than a partner or in a traditional family is common-place for younger people, but also a great alternative to living alone when you're older.

If you're aged 45-75 finding someone to share with who has a similar outlook and likes some of the same music as you can be difficult!

That's where we can help. Use the site to:

  • Find mature like-minded people to share
  • Advertise a spare room in your house
  • Find property to share
  • Get advice and inspiration about sharing

Are you a landlord or developer?

We're very interested in speaking to landlords of larger properties suitable for sharing and to residential developers interested in meeting the needs of our community of interested house sharers.
