Community Building for Old Age: Breaking New Ground. The UK’s first senior cohousing community, High Barnet

Community Building for Old Age: Breaking New Ground. The UK’s first senior cohousing community, High Barnet – Resource Library – Resources – Housing LIN

Building on the Housing LIN’s series of publications around ‘people
powered change’, it describes an initiative conceived and driven by a
group of older women who, understanding that living alone as they grew
old could leave them vulnerable, looked to each other to develop and
share their social capital.

To this end, they have built a cohousing community based on shared responsibility and mutual support.
