We’ve been supported by Lloyds Bank Foundation and Wandsworth Oasis to develop the Homeshare model as a sustainable solution to the social issues of loneliness amongst older people and unaffordable housing costs for younger people. We are members of Homeshare UK, and we work according to their Quality Assurance Framework ensuring high standards.
RiverHouse recruits Householders and Homesharers separately and checks that they are suitable to take part in the scheme. We get to know people and work on making the right match, supporting them while they meet.
We carefully manage the matching process and, once a Homeshare is set up, we support you throughout the length of the Homeshare. We offer both regular arranged support as well as being available for extra support during normal working hours.
The monthly fee of £150 goes towards this work and support for this match as well as allowing the scheme to become sustainable so that it will be available to others, hopefully for years to come
