Way Up

Way Up is an active, online self-help group aimed at providing mutual support to those who have been widowed primarily, but not exclusively,  in their 50’s and 60’s. Based in the UK. Way Up is a group with a positive, forward looking attitude to rebuilding lives. An online forum provides and important space for members to initiate friendships, exchange views and to give and receive care and support. Way Up also organises meet ups in person. Members organise events or outings across the UK, and the group occasionally travel together abroad. There is no formal network of local groups, however members can find other local members to arrange meeting up closer to home.
