interested in hosting?
Do you have a spare room – even a sofa bed?
First, please read our Information for hosts
Discuss hosting with everyone in your household and check they are all on board…
Use our online form (the link is below) to let us know about you and your home
You can tell us who you can host, and how long for
We will ask you to provide two references
HAVE A HOME VISIT…
A home visitor will arrange to meet you and the other people in your house. They will check out the accommodation, offer advice and answer your questions
Home visits can take time to set up, please be patient!
We will match what you have told us with what our guests need
Once we have a potential guest we send you information about them
You let us know if you are able to host them
We connect you with the guest’s referrer or former host
You arrange an arrival time that works
Please prepare your welcome pack and info about house rules
How this works is up to you
Some hosts share meals and do activities with guests, others just give guests a key and get on with their busy lives!
We are always here to support you
Guest moves on
Hosting is only ever temporary
We’ll be in touch towards the end of the placement
Placements may end on a pre-defined date, or when the host needs the space back, or when a guest moves on to other accommodation
We hope you’ll host again
Keep your contact details and preferences up to date on our portal
We’ll be in touch as soon as a new guest needs your help
