Homeshare pilot programme
Housing is one of the key areas for action in our Better Later Life – He Oranga Kaumātua 2019 to 2034 strategy and Action Plan. As part of our work to create diverse housing choices, we’re developing a pilot programme that enables shared living arrangements.
The programme will bring together older people with a spare room and people who are happy to lend a hand around the house in return for affordable accommodation. Every homesharing arrangement is unique – it might include shared cooking, grocery shopping or routine home maintenance. It’s all about people helping people.
The homeshare model has been around for over 25 years and has shown to benefit both the homeowner and sharer by:
• enabling an older person to live in their home and community for longer
• building new intergenerational social connections and reducing loneliness
• making more affordable accommodation options available.
