How to get involved

Get started by completing a survey to tell us:

  • about local housing stock or rooms that are potentially available to rent

You can also help by:

  • joining a My Home Network working group
  • signing up to the My Home Network mailing list
  • discussing the potential of donating or selling land to the above housing projects with a My Home Network expert
  • considering listing your rental property with a not-for-profit real estate and or renting out rooms
