The Homeshare Experience.
A shared home and shared cups of tea.

Loneliness is a hidden problem in Frome and other areas of Mendip. Homeshare Mendip supports you to get help around the house or to have affordable accommodation. Yet, one of the main benefits is companionship. An added benefit with homesharing is learning new things from the person you share a house with.

Many of us struggle with living independently at some point in our lives. Homesharing can provide you with that extra bit of support to help you stay in your own home.

Many of us struggle to stay in our local community. This could be due to high rents. Especially if you are a young person, student, public service worker, or someone who is separating from the family home.

Our matching service can help you find the right person to share a home with.


What makes Homeshare so special?

It’s all about companionship and support.

On a practical level Homeshare has given me a safe place to come home to while being able to save money. But this comes second to coming home from work every day knowing that I’ll get to laugh and gossip about my day over a coffee with Sheila.

It gets a bit boring living entirely on your own.  I wanted a bit more companionship around the home. Some assistance if something happened to me, if I got poorly, I thought it would be nice to have someone to help and it’s nice to know that I’ve got someone here.

Mum is able to get the company and support that she needs and that is hugely reassuring for me.  Knowing that Mum is in safe and secure at home now, I was recently able to go away and was really touched that Mum was able to send me a birthday video message, with help from her Sharer.
