What the Opportunity involves:

In return for the low-cost accommodation, we are looking to match a well-suited Sharer to our older retired homeowner who has found the pandemic quite lonely and isolating, particularly in recent months. He has regular calls with friends and former colleagues, and enjoys spending some time alone, but he misses having someone else around to talk to each day and share a few meals with.

Our homeowner is a retired senior commercial lawyer and an academic. He spends his days reading, taking online courses in languages and walking his very cute West Highland terrier. He speaks French, Spanish and a little German, and he enjoys listening to classical music on Radio 3.

This opportunity would suit someone who might be working in the law, or in business, and who would enjoy sharing a few evenings during the week chatting over a meal. Someone who is also happy to help with a little light housework such as keeping the kitchen tidy, putting the bins out, watering and weeding the plants occasionally.

Our homeowner would prefer to share with someone who has been double vaccinated, and ideally likes small dogs.

A cleaner comes to the house weekly and there is a car available for a driver.

Cost: £199 per month

This is a monthly facilitation fee for our matching and ongoing monitoring service. You do not pay any rent to the homeowner. You may need to contribute to council tax (c£50 per month). Full time students are exempt from Council Tax.
