Way Widowed And Young

WAY Widowed and Young, offer a peer-to-peer support network run by local member volunteers who have been bereaved themselves at a young age. By providing a pubic website we offer guidance through the first stages of bereavement for members and their friends and relatives and through the members only website, we provide many opportunities for members to meet others in the same situation. WAY also raises awareness of issues affecting those widowed young and campaigns on current issues.
