"I bring him a breath of youth and he gives me wisdom"

A life worth sharing!

Inter Generations logo

We aim to match older people living in the Worcester City area who have a spare room, with students at the University of Worcester who are looking for affordable, comfortable accommodation within easy access of the university.

In return for the room, the student (or homesharer) will provide help around the home for the householder, which will vary for each homeshare. It may include things like cooking, gardening, shopping and simply companionship.

For the householder, they receive the security of having someone close by and help around the home, as well as a contribution towards household bills and the opportunity to learn new skills, such as using computers and the internet. It also provides the householder with the opportunity to give back into the Community by helping these young people get a good start in life and help improve their career prospects.
