How Family Support Works
If you are a busy family and in need of reliable practical help and support then we can help
Balancing busy work and family life can be demanding and difficult. Supportmatch Homeshare can help by providing a fully vetted, Enhanced DBS and Reference checked Homesharer who will help with the cleaning, homework, evening babysitting or dog walking in exchange for providing a spare room.
Supportmatch Homeshare offers help and support for busy families by matching your family with a live-in Homesharer.
HOMESHARE FOR FAMILIES
Let us find the perfect person to match your needs, someone who can offer you and your family help that actually makes a difference. We interview every candidate, conducting reference and enhanced DBS checks, and we obtaining a profile and background report that covers the history of each Homesharer.
We only introduce fully vetted candidates to you, who match your requirements and criteria. Suitable candidates are then invited to interview, by video and then in-person. In the first month, following a successful match, we will closely monitor the arrangement and offer over the phone guidance, support and practical advice to both Family and the Homesharer as and when needed.
HOW IT WORKS FOR THE HOST FAMILIY
The Homeshare Family arrangement was created mostly for those who need a limited amount of childcare and Household help, who struggle to find reliable part-time staff. The Homesharer will live-in as an extension of the host family, and will provide between 10 and 15 hours of weekly help, with tasks such as babysitting, general cleaning, ironing and homework supervision. Some of our candidates will also have professional skills they can use to help your children.
The allocation of the weekly 10 to 15 hours of help and support that is provided by the Homesharer is agreed by both parties in advance for mutual convenience and interest of both the Host Family and the Homesharer. The Homesharer will also pay a monthly fee of £169 to Supportmatch Homeshare. The Homesharer will be responsible for their own personal and food expenses.
