Maria Brenton


Senior Cohousing Ambassador, UK Cohousing

Appearing on Saturday 3pm in the Mature Zone

Maria Brenton has recently stepped down from the UK Cohousing Network Board, which has now named her its ‘Senior Cohousing Ambassador'. She has researched and written about cohousing in various countries, visiting communities in Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Italy and the USA. She has been a long-term project consultant with the OWCH (Older Women's Cohousing) project in London. Autumn 2016 will see OWCH membersmove into their new homes in High Barnet. Working with partners Housing for Women, Hanover and the Tudor Trust, the mixed tenure OWCH group will be the first dedicated senior cohousing community in the UK and the only one, so far, exclusively for older women. The project, and its award-winning new building, has received much recent media interest.
