About First Light Widowed Association

Why we help

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

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.
