How can we think differently to overcome the challenges of ageing? Can we or should we chase happiness? Join OWN NSW to discuss! Join Us

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.
