RAF Widows' Association

The RAF Widows' Association (RAFWA) is a national charity for those people whose spouse or partner served in the RAF; or those who themselves serve or served and whose spouse or partner died whilst they were serving.

The Association is run by a network of volunteers who themselves are RAF widows and widowers, so they do really understand what the members are going through.

The RAFWA was founded in 1992 and aims to provide friendship, practical and emotional support to men and women – married or not, with or without children, whatever their sexual orientation as they adjust to life after the death of their spouse or partner.
