Today Australian War Widows Queensland (AWWQ) owns and manages 62 units in Brisbane and Redcliffe for those aged 55 years and over, in receipt of Income Support Supplement and capable of independent living.
All units are unfurnished and conveniently situated near medical, shopping and transport facilities. The units have one and two bedrooms and are for independent living only. All repairs and maintenance is carried out by AWWQ.
Entry covers AWWQ members over 55 years who are in receipt of an Income Support Supplement (some conditions apply).
When a vacant unit arises it will be advertised in the quarterly Bulletin magazine, and applicants will be assessed on a needs basis. An application form for accommodation can be obtained by phoning head office on (07) 3846 7706 or Freecall 1800 061 945, or by downloading an application form below.
