Losing a Spouse or Partner
Where to Find Support
It can be hard to find the right help and support after a bereavement, and what you need may change over time. We hope that amongst the selection below you find one that is right for you.
A safe space for grieving or bereaved people to share their story, explore their feelings and be supported by a qualified bereavement counsellor.
War Widows Association
The War Widows Association is a pressure group that seeks to improve the conditions of War Widows and their dependents. It also supports those who have suffered bereavement as a result of conflicts from World War II to the present day, including in peacetime if the death was attributable to their service life.
WAY (Widowed and Young)
Founded in 1997, the only UK national charity for men and women aged 50 or under when their partner died. It is a peer-to-peer emotional and practical support group run by a network of volunteers who have been bereaved at a young age themselves, so they understand exactly what other members are going through.
