house_button_older-womenAre you an older woman who is single, widowed or divorced, living on a low income and not a homeowner?

We hear a lot about the housing crisis facing young people. But how are older people fairing?

You are invited to share your stories of housing and home with Dr Emma Power, Senior Research Fellow at Western Sydney University.

This new research, funded by the Australian Research Council, aims to tell women’s stories about housing security and making home in our increasingly unaffordable city.

  • Is the place you live your ‘home’?
  • Do you ever worry about where you will live as you get older?
  • Do you live in greater Sydney (including the Central Coast, Wollongong and the Blue Mountains) – or move out of these areas due to affordability or to gain housing?

To get more information or participate in this new, Australian Research Council funded research, contact Dr Emma Power at or call or text 0410 466 744. Alternatively, send me an email using the form below.

Participation will involve an interview and follow up phone call where we will create your ‘housing biography’. Interviews will take place at your home or other location that is convenient to you. You will receive a $60 gift voucher to acknowledge your time, and will keep a copy of your ‘housing biography’ after the research.
