Army Widows’ Association

Why does the Veterans' Foundation support Army Widows’ Association?

There is little more devastating for the wife, husband or partner of a soldier than to learn their loved one has been killed in service.  

Those feelings of loss were precisely the reason why the Army Widows’ Association was created in 2004.

A volunteer-run charity, it serves to offer comfort, support and friendship to the widows and widowers of servicemen and women.

Its aim is simple; to offer help at a time when it’s needed most.

All the members have lost their husbands, wives or partners, under a variety of different circumstances, and they able to offer support and sympathy to those who have been recently widowed.

The Army Widows’ Association is totally independent and run by our members, although it does work closely with the MOD and the Army Welfare Policy Branch.

As well as helping people through difficult times with friendship and comfort, the Army Widows’ Association can assist with a wide range of support at later stages. 

Circumstances differ from person to person, so the charity has a wide range of experience which is used to help members.
