Single Ageing Women and Housing Security final report

Researchers from the Australian Research Network on Law and Ageing (ARNLA) were engaged by Office for the Ageing (OFTA) in 2015 to conduct a pilot research project involving single women over the age of 55 years living in rental accommodation in the Cities of Unley and Salisbury in South Australia.

The Single Women and Housing Security Report (PDF 1.4MB) discusses the findings from semi-structured interviews with single women over 55.  The report outlines the attitudes and challenges that single women living in rental accommodation face with respect to housing security, and will assist OFTA and the South Australian Government by providing an evidence based approach to better understanding the housing challenges and needs of this group of women.
