Two Generations Homeshare

Company, companionship, extra help around your home, homesharing

What does it do?

We match people who live alone (typically older people or those with disabilities) and have a spare room, with younger people who can provide an overnight presence, companionship and some help with household chores.

In exchange, the younger person will benefit from affordable accommodation for less than £300 per month.

Who it is for?

Older people in their own home
