COVID-19 - how it affects renting

Friendly Belgian looking for caring host family

Ad ref# 14617600

I am a sociable English/Dutch-speaking Belgian and have been blind since birth.

I love Britain and am looking for a friendly host family (sorry, no pets) who I could live with for approximately three months to experience what living in England is like, to establish new connections and possibly find work. Now that the two-week quarantine has been lifted, I am available between 12 and 15 July for viewings.

I have already stayed with host families in Kent and Bath for language, culture and cookery courses, but would like to spend an extended period of time in the UK to see how things unfold.

I am looking for a caring family to whom I could pay a little extra to provide practical support where needed (laundry, a hot meal most days etc., no personal care needed). I will also need help finding personal assistants to help me go about daily activities. My goal is to be as independent as possible, but I will need reliable people who I can turn to because as exciting as moving to England will undoubtedly be, it is also going to be an adjustment.

I would bring my own computer with braille display to access the internet.

I am more than happy to answer any questions you might have about me or my disability at any point and am able to provide excellent references from my previous host families. I would be happy to arrange a visit if you are interested in meeting me.
