Objectives

Two Generations is a social enterprise that reduce loneliness and fuel poverty, support carers, and provides affordable accommodation through Homeshares.
 

Activities

We match people who live alone (typically older people or those with disabilities) and have a spare room, with younger people who can provide an overnight presence, companionship and some help with household chores.

We have grown from inception in 2018 to the point where we have helped hundreds of people move into homes, developing Nesta-award-winning matching technology. Our organisation has also helped to vet homes for hundreds of Ukrainian refugees.
