Dot Dot Dot comes to Cambridge!

Cam_colls_from_johnsWe’re very excited to announce that we’re expanding our work looking after empty homes and supporting voluntary work to the thriving city of Cambridge.

For those of you who are new to Dot Dot Dot − we’re a social enterprise that allows people who do voluntary work to live cheaply in homes that would otherwise be empty as property guardians. Property guardians live in vacant buildings on a temporary basis in order to take care of them for landlords until they can be brought back into use. Providing this service allows us to offer reliable security to landlords, inexpensive housing and support for volunteering to guardians, and enables local communities to benefit from guardians’ voluntary work. Since we started in 2011, our guardians have given over 20,000 hours to charitable causes, we’ve won a Security Excellence Award and we were recently included on the Nesta 2014 New Radicals list.

We’ll be protecting a number of centrally located empty homes in Cambridge by placing people who’re committed to giving their time to charitable causes to live in them and take care of them.  In a growing city where housing demand outstrips supply and average rents are very high, we think Cambridge is an ideal second home for our community-orientated property guardianship model. Our new guardians will have ample amounts of volunteering opportunities and will be able to make a great contribution to the city’s communities whilst making huge savings on their accommodation costs.

We’re currently looking for brilliant new guardians for our upcoming Cambridge properties. We will be offering housing for between £40 and £70 a week to flexible and reliable people over the age of 21 who are willing to give 16 hours a month or more to a charitable cause of their choice.

If you’d like to apply please complete our full application form here or if you’d like to find out more please feel free to contact us on 0203 005 2457 or hello@dotdotdotproperty.com. You can read more about being a guardian here.
