Home Sharing Clubs 101

Home Sharing Clubs are a way for hosts on Airbnb to connect with one another. Home Sharing Clubs across London and the UK have been organised by motivated hosts, keen to build a sense of community with other hosts in their local areas. Presently, there are several Home Sharing Clubs across the UK and Scotland.

Here’s a bit more information about why they’re formed and what they do:

Providing a sense of community

  • For hosts to connect with other hosts (online and in person)
  • that can fit hosts’ schedules and needs with a minimal time commitment, on a voluntary basis, and with no membership fees
  • To give hosts a voice so they can raise issues to improve the host experience
