Welcome to The War Widows’ Association of Great Britain

The War Widows’ Association is essentially a pressure group and exists to improve the conditions of War Widows and their dependants in Great Britain.

Its work encompasses those who have suffered bereavement as a result of World War II and all conflicts since then including Iraq and Afghanistan. The WWA also represents those who have suffered the loss of their partner and in peacetime, when the death was attributable to their service life.
