What we are about

The War Widows’ Association of Great Britain was formed in 1971 becoming a registered charity in 1991 and has developed into the United Kingdom’s leading representative organisation for widow(er)s of Armed Forces Personnel where death has been caused by or hastened by service. Everything that we do is based around our 3 core values….


Campaigning is the foundation of the War Widows’ Association; the Association has managed many successful campaigns to improve the conditions of War Widows and War Widowers.



We care by signposting members to the appropriate help and through our network of Regional Organisers we offer friendship and support.



Remembrance, the third pillar of the War Widows’ Association is a very important part of its programme of events.
