After being introduced both parties have time to think about whether they would be happy living in the same home. They may want to meet again before making that decision. If they decide to share, we draw up a written agreement so that each is clear about what to expect from the other.
The first month is a trial period whilst they get used to each other. Throughout the duration of the match, however long it lasts, the Co-ordinator is always on hand to monitor progress and give support.
During the early stages the Co-ordinator is in touch frequently to ensure everyone is happy with the arrangement, and to help iron out any small issues that might arise. As the Sharer and the Householder get used to each other’s company the need for support lessens. However, the Co-ordinator is just a phone call away.
