Helping to navigate life after loss

How can WAY support you?

WAY Widowed & Young

Support. Understanding. Friendship.

WAY is a UK charity that offers a peer-to-peer support network for anyone who's lost a partner before their 51st birthday – married or not, with or without children, whatever their sexual orientation.

Get online support from others who understand and access to a 24-hour telephone helpline.
