A North London woman has founded a business which connects older people looking for housemates.
Crouch End resident Margaret Byrne, 57, launched Cosy Quarters to help match over-40s by location, budget and lifestyle.
Margaret personally struggled with house-hunting, and said existing housemate websites are aimed at “millennials and digital nomads”.
She added: “Having a happy household means you have to be honest, and sure about what you want.
“Cosy Quarters connects people who share the same values, who can inspire and support one another.
“It’s really about forming a community of people.”
Age UK found that lonely over-50s will reach two million by 2026, compared to 1.4 million in 2016 - a 49% increase in 10 years.
