The Homeshare West Co-ordinator visits you (with perhaps your relative or a friend) for an in-depth interview to ask about the kind of support you would like, and the type of person you would like to have sharing your home. We want to know who you will get on with.

We then search for the Sharer. It may take some time to find the right person, which does give you the time to reflect before making a definite commitment to share. The Co-ordinator arranges a meeting to introduce the potential Sharer. That meeting may take a couple of hours, and you don’t make the decision straight away. We know you need time to think it over and you may want to meet the Sharer again before giving us your decision.
