WE'RE BUILDING OUR OWN COMMUNITY
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 in a few months time.
Our OWCH building will be completed in May. It offers 17 flats for sale and 8 for social rent. There are currently TWO VACANCIES: a 1-bedroom flat for a social rent and available only to women eligible for social housing, and a 2-bedroom flat for sale.
Any prospective renter or buyer (woman of 50+ years) will need to come to meet us and apply for membership of the group.
