In Bremen many older people are left with spare rooms once their children are grown up and have moved out. On the other side, many students and young academics are on the hunt for affordable housing. The Studierendenwerk Bremen together with the City of Bremen have started the project "Housing for Help" ("Wohnen für Hilfe"). Older citizens provide their free rooms rent-free to those seeking who in return offer their help with light house and garden work. 

It is not about caring for an older person or doing a lot of handy work but to support each other while living together. For each square meter the student works one hour per months. All additional costs for water and electricity are payed in Euro. All tasks and services are set in the rental agreement. 

The Studierendenwerk advises and informs students that are interested to later find the perfect housing match. The city does the same for the other side and before signing any rental agreement both parties can meet to get to know each other. Part of the project is to not only match expectations in the tasks but also to fit together on a personal level. 

For more information or to join the project students and seniors can contact 01590 631 0007 or wohnenfuerhilfe.bremenprotect me ?!gmailprotect me ?!.com.
