The Hallmark Affordable Housing research initiative invites experts in housing, aged care and equity to to attend an important half-day workshop focusing on older women and affordable housing. Options include Friday 27 May (in person) and Friday 3 June (online).

The idea is to bring together people from across sectors to develop and extend solutions. The workshop participants will co-create a statement on what needs to happen next to respond to the growing crisis of older women’s homelessness and housing stress.

The researchers will map the connections between organisations working in older women’s housing and homelessness to better understand how to support collaboration and scaling of solutions.


There are two workshops to choose from:

Workshop One (in person at the University of Melbourne Parkville Campus)
9–11.30am, Friday 27 May

Workshop Two (online)
9–11.30am, Friday 3 June


Workshop One (27 May) – register for the in-person workshop

Workshop Two (3 June) – register for the online workshop
