Fair BnB want to help struggling families get back on their feet by matching those who don’t have a roof over their head with generous homeowners who have the space to put them up.  See below.

  • Looking for hosts who have space in their houses. Depending on how much space you’ve got available, this might range from a single mum to a family.
  • The people you'd be hosting are people like your friends or family, only that they have fallen on hard times. The alternative for most families is being placed in a B&B, often miles away from their home and their child’s school.
  • Hosts will be paid £20 per night for a double room. That works out at £140 a week or £1,120 if the placement lasts eight weeks. For a single bedroom the rate is £15 per night, and for a triple bedroom the rate is £25 a night. Funding for hosts comes from Croydon Council's temporary accommodation budget.
  • On top of this, hosts will get to enjoy an interesting experience and meet people they might have never otherwise met. And they’ll get to know they’re making a real difference to people’s lives.

FairBnB is currently in its pilot phase. When it is rolled out fully, it will be a social enterprise - which means that any profit made will be reinvested into FairBnB so that more can be done to tackle homelessness.
