Register with Better Together Housing (BTH) to access resources, connect with our community, and find, or offer housing solutions
Better Together Housing is a member based online platform where single women over the age of 55 can connect with each other with the intention of sharing a home. The program has been created in response to the rising cost of living and social isolation experienced by many older women living on their own.
We do not provide housing but do provide spaces online and in person where women can meet and build relationships and friendships, and resources to assist people in negotiating a successful tenancy together. Members can then seek housing through the private rental market together, or share existing tenancies or homes.
All registered members have undergone a current National Police check prior to participation in the program to provide peace of mind.
