Support

The support section is divided into two parts. The support groups are tangible groups; many of which hold meetings and events. The second section lists online support.

Support groups

National Association of  Widows

Offers support, friendship and understanding to men and women who have lost their partners through bereavement.  We do this with the help of people who know how you feel – other widows and widowers.

The WAY Foundation

WAY aims to support young widowed men and women as they adjust to life after the death of their partner – whether that was a month, a year, or ten years ago.

We have lively social groups that meet up throughout the year – for drinks, meals out, walks and picnics. We organise weekends away for adults and families, go camping, have parties and offer an alternative social life that does not revolve around couples.

All our groups are run by volunteers who are WAY members, which means everyone you meet in WAY will understand something about what you’ve been through.
