The Women’s Housing Company seeks opportunities to increase and enhance our property portfolio to meet the demand for affordable, secure, well located accommodation for women.
We have a particular focus on housing that is well designed and suited for women of all ages, including as they get older. Properties that incorporate universal design principles allow women to age in place, promoting the notion of a home for life.
With security features such as intercoms, strategically placed common areas, well located external lighting and good visibility, tenants can feel safe in their homes.
Access to open space, community gardens, courtyards and communal spaces are important to encourage connection and wellbeing.
New Housing In Woolloomooloo For Older Women
Opened in late 2017, the Woolloomooloo Older Women’s Housing Hub was built by the NSW Land and Housing Corporation, providing 20 universally designed units for older women to age in place. The design and security elements balance tenants’ privacy with opportunities for connection with neighbours, enhancing community cohesiveness and personal wellbeing.
The building seamlessly integrates with the local community and incorporates elements of the area’s heritage. The community room is being established as a Hub for offering onsite services, workshops and programs for tenants and others in the community.
