Housing for Women

Lovely to meet Housing for Women’s  new (ish) CEO, Jakki Moxham yesterday.

We had a look at the proposed site and then were made welcome by the wonderful Mill where we had a long chat in the Mill’s Living Room about both our organisations and the possibility of some collaboration, partnering. Jakki explained that they dont normally work in Waltham Forest but will talk to colleagues and see what they think. Our idea of having a floor for single women over 50 might work if those women are moving from houses that they already own and are not going to need a mortgage; Housing for Women have seen problems with obtaining mortgages if there is any sort of covenant requiring “women only” or other restrictions on future sales.
