Welcome to the War Widows Association
The War Widows Association of Great Britain is 52 years old and it has continued to grow in strength over that time.
We are primarily a campaigning and pressure group. As part of the UK Military Bereaved Family we want to ensure that war widows and widowers are always treated fairly and receive all the benefits and assistance to which they are entitled.
Anyone who is unfortunate enough to belong to the UK Military Bereaved Family can become a member of the War Widows Association. See membership categories for more information.
We operate under three pillars: campaigning, caring and remembering and all are very important to us.
Our members enjoy meeting at both national and local events which are organised by the events Trustee and the Regional Organisers.
Our Core Values
The WWA’s work is based on three pillars: Campaigning, Caring and Remembering.
Our magazine, Courage, is published online in our members area three times a year.
For those who have sight problems the magazine is now available in large print or audio format. Please apply to the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would prefer to receive either of these.
If you have an article or photographs that you think would be of interest to other members of the association the editorial team would be very pleased to hear from you. You can contact them at email@example.com.
Please also send them to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion on the website and social media.
