Welcome to WAY

When you become a WAY member, there will always be someone to talk to – whether online through our members only website or closed Facebook groups, or in person at local and national meetups. We have over 4,500 members across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We offer an extensive range of support services designed to help you navigate your grief and talk to others who understand your pain.

Annual membership costs £25 and helps us to maintain the peer-to-peer service and website. 

We also offer a financial scheme to those who are struggling with finances.
