Carers Lewisham are working with other carers organisations in London as part of a consortium called Novus are now running a project called Homeshare .
Homeshare is a scheme which matches people looking for a place to live that they can afford with older or other vulnerable people willing to share their accommodation with someone in return for company and 10 hours light help per week. Both sides pay a fee to Novus Homeshare for the match, security checking and for on-going support.
This scheme, which was only running in north London, has only recently been taken over by Novus is now London wide.
