Shedders are artists, collectors, story-tellers, amateur radio enthusiasts, train spotters, model makers…..Anyone is welcome and any interest, skill or project is given equal consideration – especially if it could attract new members or gain valuable income to support the development of the entire group

    For those people that don’t feel that they need a high level of emotional support, but would like to try some practical, evidence-based tasks to help them understand and manage their emotions better, active monitoring could be the perfect form of support.

    Swansea Mind offers a counselling service with our trainee counsellors, who have received their fitness to practice from a certified counselling course, are aligned with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and are fully supervised by experienced counsellors.
    Counselling will be offered for an initial 6 sessions, after which it may be extended by further blocks of 6 sessions at the discretion of the client and their counsellor.

    Shared Homes Swansea

    Bringing Householders and Homesharers together to share home life, time, skills, and experience.
    Shared Homes Swansea connects individuals with spare rooms to those happy to offer companionship and help in exchange for affordable accommodation. Our goal is to help older individuals maintain their independence and improve their overall well-being through carefully matched Homeshare arrangements.
    For Householders
    Our Householders are typically older adults who may need some help or simply value the company of another person. We understand the significance of one's home and aim to assist older people in continuing to reside in their own homes, enhancing their quality of life through Homeshare matches.
    For Homesharers
    Homesharers are individuals who share around 10 hours of their time each week to enrich the lives of our Householders. This isn't a rental arrangement; instead, it's a unique living experience built on improving the well-being of those involved. Our Homesharers undergo screening, including DBS checks and safeguarding training, to ensure the safety and security of everyone involved in these carefully created Homeshare matches.
    Our Approach
    Safety is a top priority at Shared Homes Swansea. Both Householders and Homesharers provide references, and we carefully match individuals based on compatibility, fostering meaningful connections and shared experiences. Householders contribute a monthly fee of £80, while Homesharers pay £160 per month to cover our services. Homesharers will also be asked to contribute to household bills.
    How to Get Started
    If you're an older person interested in becoming a Householder or Homesharer, please contact us today to learn more about how Homeshare matches can enhance your life:
