Event description
The Lady Musgrave Trust presents a series of workshops for women over the age of 55 who find themselves at risk of homelessness.

About this event

Every older woman can take back control of their circumstances and have the opportunity to live a better and fulfilled life.

Older women experiencing homelessness do not know where to seek help. The COVID-19 pandemic has further exacerbated the situation, with an increased demand on volatile services. Many of these women are experiencing homelessness for the first time later in life and feel ashamed and intimidated when approaching services tailored for people who have experienced long-term homelessness. In between the last two-census period, the ABS reported a 31% increase in older women’s homelessness.

In these workshops, you will:

- Learn about the range of housing options older women are considering

- Identify the different types of attitudes to money and financial security

- Increase their knowledge about specific over 50’s housing and the process of application

- Acknowledge the challenges and opportunities for older women accessing housing

- Explore decision-making processes and learn and apply planning tools

- Developing an individual plans for action

These workshops are delivered by qualified housing solutions experts using teaching techniques and resources found in The Handy Guide for Older Women.

Limited places. Refreshments will be provided.

Date: Saturday 6 November 2021

Time: 3pm-5pm

Location: Garden City Library, Garden City Shopping Centre, Cnr Logan Rd & Kessels Rd, Upper Mount Gravatt Qld
