For older women

Older women’s co-housing

We worked with the Older Women’s Co-Housing (OWCH) group during the development of New Ground – a pioneering women's co-housing scheme of 25 flats in High Barnet purpose-built for women over 50.

The first co-housing project of its kind in the UK, the scheme was delivered in partnership with OWCH and the Hanover Housing Association.  The acquisition of the eight rented units for Housing for Women's residents was made possible by a grant from the Tudor Trust. Eight of Housing for Women’s older residents took up residency in their new homes in early 2017.
