We have a website,facebook groups and pages set up after I myself was looking for an exchange and saw how hard it was.I successfully moved on a 5 way swap from Eastbourne to London in August 2015.After studying the housing laws and going through the process myself i was able to recruit volunteers who have moved with us and help other families needing support.To date we have over 20,000 members and have conducted regular surveys to see the areas people are moving to and from and how we can support tenants further. By running workshops,events,networking days and training we can help tenants build teams and multi swaps as many find it difficult to set up or need training using the internet.

What we'll deliver:

  • offer one to one support online 24 hours
  • organise events in local community,workshops,networking and training
  • save the councils and local authorities money moving families downsizing
  • reach out to more families
  • work with homeswapper the leading exchange site who have agreed to work with us on community projects
  • working with mentorn media tv channel 4 documentaries

Why it's a great idea:

so many families need support with moving it's become the quickest way to get a transfer for a new job,move close to family,downsize/upsize move from adapted to adapted,flee due to domestic violence or to get that fresh start they deserve. If supported and pointed in the right direction one could be moved into their dreamhome within 6 weeks (42 day rule )

Steps to get it done:


with your support we can help many get that fresh start.we believe teamwork makes the dream work and communication is the key
