Older Women’s Housing
During the year we continued to work with the Older Women’s Co-Housing (OWCH) group during the development of New Ground – an innovative purpose-built scheme of 25 flats in High Barnet. Handover of the site was completed near the end of 2016 with Housing for Women’s 8 tenants taking up residency in their new homes in early 2017. The scheme was delivered with members of the OWCH group and the Hanover Housing Association. The acquisition of the 8 rented units for Housing for Womens' tenants was made possible by a grant from the Tudor Trust.
The Thrale Almshouse scheme in Streatham, formally opened in October 2015. Housing for Women act as managing agents. The scheme houses women over the age of 60 with a local connection to the parish of Streatham.
Greenwich Housing Society
Greenwich Housing Society was established in the late 1950s as a provider of accommodation for people of pensionable age who are able to live independently and have a connection with the Royal Borough of Greenwich. We provide a maintenance service to their 17 tenants under a management agreement.
