  • FOHCOL again hosted the best gathering to celebrate the International day of Co-operatives (July 2nd). As you will see from our review paper (930 KB) with many colour photos, the event was well attended and showcased not only the beauty of the housing co-ops (with tours of four nearby co-ops), but the solidity and resilience of the sector. There were talks from Lynn MacLaren MLC, SHAC, Co-operation Housing, and FOHCOL.
  • The FOHCOL presentation to the Department of Commerce Co-operatives Unit when hosting their training days for Cocos Islander co-op members (in July) was a strong statement for the benefits and resilience and adaptability of WA housing co-ops.
  • The FOHCOL Coordinator and Convenor were accepted as delegates to the Commonwealth People's Forum  held in Perth. This was a chance to mix with 52 nations and show them our housing co-ops during the Learning Journey session as well as make valuable links during the forums.
