We are a shared housing community
Facilitating shared living for women over 55, helping create a safe and affordable lifestyle for the future

Benefits of shared housing


Our purpose is to promote social inclusion and a sense of belonging.

Peace of Mind

Having someone else to share your residence means another person to look out for you and your property.

Woman Focused

Developed by mature women, to meet the needs of mature women.


Sharing housing costs means that participants can afford to enjoy more of what life has to offer.


All participants are required to submit a current police check or blue card.

Is this program for you?

Better Together Housing is a program designed by women over 55 to meet the needs of independent women like ourselves. It is tailored to bring women together in a safe and secure way to find shared accommodation. Participants can be women who own or rent their home but are interested in finding a woman to share with, or women who are looking for a new place to live with one (or more) other woman. We also welcome women who are not sure about sharing, but want to connect with other women and explore a little first before deciding.

We are different to regular flatmate finder platforms, we are specifically for older women, and every registered participant has undertaken a police check so you can feel secure. 

Our participants need to be open to negotiate how their home can be shared, but we have resources to support this.

We currently operate in the Sunshine Coast and Mackay regions in Queensland. We are hoping to expand to other areas soon.

Better Together Housing is an inclusive community and welcomes women over 55 to respectfully participate regardless of where they have come from, their religion, their culture or their sexuality.
