Room for Tea

RoomForTeaLogoRoom for Tea is a new kind of home-sharing network that connects guests in need of short-term, affordable accommodation in London, with hosts who have a spare room in their homes. The average stay is two months.
Although Room for Tea is for anyone, the intended beneficiaries are aspiring interns or apprentices and older isolated people. Room for Tea intends to not only generate an income stream for older people but also to reduce social isolation among the elderly and to increase intergenerational contact. As part of the agreement between the guest and the host is to cook for each other some nights and to have a cup of tea together regularly.
The Room for Tea team vets hosts and guests, matches the guests with the hosts and is a point of contact for any sort of questions. For this it charges a small fee that covers these administrative costs to sustain the venture.
