Carers in other areas of central London have already discovered NOVUS Homeshare: this is a high quality scheme that matches younger people, looking for affordable accommodation and willing to provide help at home, with people who have a spare room and need extra support around the house.
Homeshare’s staff personally interview all applicants and visit your home to ensure that they find the right match for you. The Homeshare team focuses on the quality of our service and the personal touch. They undertake detailed checks and matching for all applicants to make sure that this arrangement works well for both parties. Your carefully-selected Homesharer will live in your home and provide you with 10 hours support each week.
This type of live-in support doesn’t replace a full care service, but can be used alongside care support and as respite. It also provides the peace and security of having someone there every night when perhaps family and friends aren’t able to be.
Homeshare is a scheme run by Novus – The London Carers’ Centres Consortium (We are members of Novus), which is also a registered charity. There is a monthly fee of £130 to run the service and make the charity sustainable, please contact the Homeshare team if you would like to know more, they will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
