Director and Co-ordinator
Sarah has always been a people person. Initially a family lawyer, she went on to run a successful legal recruitment consultancy, using her natural matchmaking skills to source, select and match lawyers to roles in law firms. Being a truly successful recruiter means having natural empathy, something Sarah has in spades and this also makes her an ideal co-ordinator for Homeshare Living. She has always had an innate ability to get to know people quickly and understand their real needs. What’s more she has personal experience of homesharing as her 85-year-old grandfather was successfully matched with a 19-year-old Sharer, a match that lasted almost six years. Sarah, who is married and has three young adult children, says: “The thought of older people living alone, feeling isolated and anxious, makes me so sad especially when I know it doesn’t have to be this way. This is why facilitating successful homeshare matches and easing the feeling of loneliness for older people by connecting them with caring young people caught by the current accommodation crisis is so important to me. I love seeing the many benefits that come from homesharing to all those involved – the elderly homeowners, the younger sharers and definitely their relatives too”.
