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 complex will be completed towards the end of June 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 circle of women who are interested in cohousing and would like to keep in touch with our group.   They will then be the first to be informed should a vacancy occur.
