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 young person with autism.

Available from: End July 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 private 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 spread across midweek mornings (Monday to Friday 7 -8:30 am), and regular and short check in’s in the evening around 7 or 8 pm.

Our homeowner is in his late 20s and is a graduate working full time in a law firm. He is autistic and whilst independent and self-sufficient, he can find leaving home in the mornings 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.

The ideal Sharer will probably be in their 30s, either working or studying, who is patient, kind and tidy and has an understanding of mental health and can be sensitive to other’s needs. Someone who is up and about at home from around 7 am – 8:30 am on midweek mornings and who is happy to help the homeowner to prepare for his day, preferably also fully vaccinated and  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.)
