About Us

OWN NSW believes in, and promotes, a society rich in social capital.

We’re older, bolder, wiser and wittier! Watch the video to find out.

Women are traditional spinners - of tales, of cloth, or many fine things. May we in OWN continue to spin strong webs of support which create a safety net for older women's emotional and physical wellbeing; and create a sling from which to catapult into the wider community older women's aspirations for a better world.
