Support from WAY

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we wanted to reassure everyone that WAY Widowed and Young’s 3400+ members are rallying around each other – offering help, advice and support to help each other get through the difficult days and weeks ahead.

Although our face-to-face meet ups are on hold for now, we have an incredibly active online community through our members’ only website and Facebook groups – we are already seeing people banding together, reassuring each other and finding ways to connect to each other during this challenging time by organising virtual meet ups through Zoom and other online apps. 

This is a strange and distressing time to be grieving and isolated, but WAY members ready to listen, offer support and help lift each other’s spirits.
