I’m currently separating from my husband and we have a 5 year old daughter. I am moving out of our family home and trying to find a room to rent in a shared house/affordable houseshare where I would be able to have my daughter stay with me at least 5 nights a week.
I can’t afford to rent a whole flat or house on my own so have been looking at rooms in shared houses, but all the ones I’ve contacted so far do not even consider the idea of having a mother and child rent the room – they all seek ‘single professional only’ etc.
Would anyone be interested in a houseshare in the West Kent/South London/Surrey or Sussex area? I mean either another single parent who has a room to rent out to us, or someone willing to go in together on a rental (depending on affordsability).
I’m 36 and a full time working professional, very responsible and tidy, easy going and friendly. My daughter is in Reception year at primary school, she is generally well behaved and lovely, and sociable with other children. I would be willing to provide babysitting/childcare/sharing things like cooking or school runs if we got along with each other and it all worked out 🙂
I work as a social worker and have full DBS checks for this job, I could also provide professional and character references.
I realise this is a long shot… but worth a try. I thought maybe there is another single parent out there who has a spare room and needs to boost their income, or perhaps someone in the same situation as me.
