OWCH is a group of women over fifty who are creating our own community in a new, purpose-built block of flats in Union St., High Barnet, N. London.

As an alternative to living alone, we are getting to know each other as neighbours - and friendly, helpful neighbours, at that.  That’s why we meet regularly each month and why we are planning to move in together soon.

Our OWCH complex will be completed by 21st November 2016. It offers 17 flats for sale on 250-year leases and 8 for social rent. There are currently no vacancies, but this could change in the future and we are keen to build up a small circle of women who are interested in cohousing and would like to keep in touch with our group. This process will re-commence in Spring 2017. This circle will then be the first to be informed should a vacancy occur.
