About Us

Women’s Pioneer Housing was established in 1920 by women and men who believed in gender equality and the need to redress the disadvantages women experienced in obtaining and retaining a secure home. Their aim was:

…to cater for the housing requirements of professional and other women of moderate means who require individual homes at moderate rents….

Despite changes in social attitudes and legislation, women are still disadvantaged when it comes to housing. Women’s Pioneer’s vision is making a positive difference to women’s lives. Our mission is to provide homes and services which offer a springboard to independent women to achieve their potential. We aim to influence others to do the same.
