In July 2009 Régis and Claire de Kerautem created the 1toit2âges (‘one roof, two ages’) programme in Brussels. It now also covers other towns such as Namur, Mons, Liege, Tournai, Charleroi and Louvain la Neuve, and more than 3800 matches have been made.
1toit2ages is composed of a team with very diverse profiles; lawyer, social worker, journalist, neuropsychologist, economist, professors, senior… each one bringing his skills, his knowledge, his sensitivity and his listening to this purely Human project.
Types of participants served:
The programme benefits, on one hand, students who need a room to study and young workers and, on the other hand, older people (aged 50 plus) who can offer a furnished room from September to June. The oldest home provider so far is 101 years old.
Breaking the loneliness of the elderly and facilitating access to housing for students.
Our dream ?
A society where generations support and enrich each other.
We believe in it and are doing everything we can to achieve it!
Among other distinctions such as the Brussels awards….1Toit2Ages received the SilverEco and Ageing Well International Awards in France in 2022.
