Homes within Homes is a not-for-profit organisation promoting the innovative use of the UK’s existing housing stock to increase the supply of good quality, affordable homes to rent in a safe and regulated environment, providing income for homeowners

The purpose of this website is to promote practical ways to use our existing housing stock to increase the supple of homes for rent and to establish a community interested in this idea. Homes within homes advocates that house-owners, remaining in occupation, let out independent, self-contained areas for living in their houses, providing an income for themselves and affordable accommodation for tenants
