Women’s Housing Company has recently opened a complex in the heart of Woolloomooloo. Its Older Women’s Hub has brought together a community of older women living in social housing locally, and across the wider Women’s Housing Company tenant population.
Rather than burden busy family or rely on accessing complicated services, the women often prefer to support one another.
Tenants have been pivotal in leading, participating and co-designing activities. New funding would allow the Hub to expand activities at Woolloomooloo to include more digital and financial literacy. It would also help set up a sister Hub in Chester Hill.
FUNDING TARGET $11,000
- $38 helps bring a new communal space for older, single women living in social housing
- $75 will help a group of older women remain active and independent
- $138 helps an older woman learn smart phone skills and stay connected to friends and family
