Housing Older Women’s Movement
Maggie has a forty-year involvement in work, learning, engagement and community development practice in various structures and settings. In addition, Maggie has personal and professional experience regarding housing and homelessness and points where these intersected.
Included was the start-up and development of a housing co-operative in the 1980’s and finding a solution when facing homelessness myself in 2015. Maggie worked with Q Shelter from 2019-to 2021. During this period, one of the focus areas was to support the voice of older women to influence public policy and community understanding of the issues being faced by older women in Qld and link this social concern nationally.
