Homeshare – Marylebone, London NW1

We are delighted to offer a new opportunity to live affordably and comfortably in the heart of central London in return for providing some practical support to a younger person with autism.

Available from: March 2022.

Homeshare Location:

Only a few moments away from Marylebone Station and 5-10 minutes’ walk to London’s West End and Regents Park etc

Accommodation on Offer:

Large double bedroom in a well maintained flat within a gated block. Plenty of wardrobe space, desk, and chair and ensuite shower room and toilet. Shared use of kitchen and living area. Wifi is available.

What the Opportunity involves:

In return for the low-cost accommodation (£199 per month), we are looking to match our homeowner with a kind and friendly Sharer who can provide around 10 hours each week of practical support, and some companionship.

Our homeowner is in his late 20s and a graduate currently applying for jobs. He is autistic and whilst independent and self-sufficient, he can find leaving home on his own quite challenging sometimes and would benefit by having somebody around who can prompt and encourage him to do so.

His interests include foreign films, art, philosophy, history, and current affairs. He is open and communicative, and sometimes he can be sociable, but at other times he prefers his own company and would not want any companionship. He has a close family and good friends who are in regular touch.

We are looking to match our homeowner with someone who can be around in the mornings Monday to Friday from about 8 am for a couple of hours to prompt and encourage him to get up and out of the flat.

The ideal Sharer will probably be in their 30s, patient, kind and tidy with an understanding of mental health and sensitive to other’s needs. Someone who is working mostly outside of the home would be preferable, who has been fully vaccinated and is a non-smoker.

Cost: £199 per month

This is a monthly facilitation fee for our matching and ongoing monitoring service. You do not pay the rent to the homeowner although you will be asked to make a small but reasonable contribution towards bills and Council tax (Full-time students are exempt from council tax.)
