Nowra

Promoting friendships and community on the south coast

Who Are We?

Nowra OWN was established in 1992, with the aim of being an information hub for older women in the region, and a mouthpiece for their concerns. 

Rights, dignity and wellbeing have always been central to our charter, and with them the importance of friendship as we age, and its role in maintaining health and wellbeing and preventing social isolation.

At Nowra OWN we have chosen to do this by holding monthly meetings which combine information sessions with social gatherings.  We meet on the 2nd 4th Friday of each month except during the December/January break.

You can find us in the Nowra Neighbourhood Centre, 41 Worrigee Street Nowra.

Occasionally we may go ‘off-site’ for an excursion into the outer lying areas, as many of the members of Nowra OWN come from villages away from the main township.

This helps bridge the distance often felt by older women living in rural communities where transport options are limited.

Our regular activities may include the following:

  • Discussion Groups
  • Guest Speakers
  • Excursions
  • Morning Teas

We aim at supplying information to our members through invited speakers. We also aim at encouraging friendships and fun through members’ talks and activities
