Benefits of Membership

Widowed Friends is exclusively for single widows or widowers. We are not a grief support group or a dating group, but are a social community for individuals who have experienced spousal loss and wish to meet, participate in social outings and develop friendships with others who have experienced a similar loss.

Why join our community?

Widowed Friends is a social group for people who share a common experience in the loss of a spouse. It is not a grief support group, but provides opportunities to reconnect socially with people in the widowed/widower community following spousal loss.
