What we're about

Our local catch-ups are all hosted by widowed people who have volunteered their time to First Light Widowed Association Inc and understand how nerve-wracking it can be to branch out of your comfort zone and meet new people, particularly when you're grieving. Our volunteers work hard to ensure these informal, non-structured events are a safe and supportive experience where our members can share and speak openly. Our organisation fosters peer-support for young widows and widowers (who were up to the age of 59 at the time of their loss). First Light was started by young widowed people, for young widowed people. When we all found ourselves facing the loss of our spouse we searched for help and support but found this was lacking. So, we created the organisation that we wish existed when we needed it most in the hope that it would help those who would follow behind us. Our vision is for a world where young widowed people live full and happy lives, while celebrating their love for their departed spouse in a community of acceptance and support.
