The Charity Helping To Navigate Life After Loss

Words by Abi Scaife

WAY is the only national charity in the UK for people aged 50 or under when their partner died. It’s a peer-to-peer support group operating with a network of volunteers who have been bereaved at a young age themselves, so they understand exactly what other members are going through. 

You don't have to face widowhood alone – join over 4,700 other young widowed people across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales who ‘get it’. If you've lost your partner before your 51st birthday and live in the UK – whether you were married or not, with or without children, whatever your sexual orientation, race or religion – you are welcome to join us. 

Joining up to WAY takes just minutes and costs just £25 a year, which can be paid either by direct debit or PayPal.
