Draycott Homeshare
4th World Homeshare Congress Melbourne


Successful Homeshare programs, including our own, from around the globe are coming to Melbourne on 5th and 6th November 2015 for the 4th World Homeshare Congress.

For the first time in World Homeshare Congress history, the event is taking place outside of Europe, with representatives from eight countries already locked in to attend and present case studies.

This is a fantastic opportunity to do a World Homeshare study tour in one place!

Among others, Draycott Homeshare will be giving a presentation on our history, how we run and what we have achieved. Homeshare practitioners and managers responsible for the programs will be on hand for questions and discussion.

Thought-provoking papers will be given on topics such as Why Homeshare warrants a worldwide movement and the economic and political significance of Homeshare in Australia.

What is Homeshare?

The simplicity of Homeshare is to provide accommodation in exchange for an agreed level of companionship and practical support to help manage the home bringing security and peace of mind.

Essentially we bring people together who have a great deal to offer each other. The world can be a lonely, frightening and inhospitable place if you are living on your own. It can also be problematic and costly if you are a student, young professional or living away from home – especially in a new country.

Draycott Homeshare provides a positive solution for people who want to remain independent and stay in their own home to continue to be part of their community of neighbours and friends for as long as possible.

For the Homesharer It provides an affordable home in return for a little time, help and companionship.

For the Householder It provides peace of mind for them, and for their families.
