All the Lonely People? Not for Long…Enter Generation Accommodation


It’s a ridiculously simple idea…like most genius light bulb moments! Students desperate for somewhere (reasonably decent) to live, and older folk who are living alone, and maybe feeling a bit solitary…what if the two should meet? Enter Generation Accommodation: a group of outwardly-minded students who, to quote “provides a unique matching process, community, and facilitates the accommodation process seamlessly taking into account the needs of the participants”. Socially responsible students get to share the home (and company and life perspective) of a senior member of society, as part of a networked community. And usually for a lower rent…win-win all round. Their message is simple: reach out, connect, care.
