Ideal Flatmate

The Youth Patrons worked on a project with Ideal Flatmate, a company that works to match flatmates based on their shared interests while supporting a safe renting environment. 

They shared their own renting experiences and developed top tips providing advice to autistic renters and those living with them. 

The Youth Patrons created online content on four key topics which was shared on the Ideal Flatmate website and YouTube. You can find out more about those topics below:
