Over a cup of tea, our free & friendly workshops cover a range of topics allowing participants to develop their understanding of what is involved in the general idea of co-housing and specifics of the Sharing with Friends model.

They are open to all-comers, co-hosted by Sharing with Friends’ Secretary Anne Landsberg and Adrienne Irvine two experienced workshop presenters. Other volunteer experts in legal, property, financial, eligibility for government assistance, and co-living are invited to present throughout the series of 12.

Over time, the workshops also allow participants to test the implications of sharing, cooperation, and co-living. The informal setting allows groups smaller than five to get to meet and determine whether joining up in a co-housing situation with like-minded people is worth pursuing.

The Foundation’s directors are dedicated to assisting older women to find suitable homes where they can age in place. There is no obligation to sign up to Sharing with Friends. Various affordable housing options will also be canvassed.


Free Workshop Series every week. Saturday March 6 and runs till June 12. Time of day varies.

  • Pros & Cons of co-housing
  • Sharing with Friends – how much will it cost?
  • Title Deed vs Company Shares
  • The Co-Housing Contract
  • Exiting and recouping one’s investment
  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Older Women’s Co-Housing Association’s ongoing role
