Information on navigating the challenges of widowhood

We understand the challenges of concentrating and processing information due to the impacts of grief. It is our hope that by providing this information in hard-copy format it will be easier to read, make notes and re-visit when needed.

Our Newly Widowed Packs will never be sent unsolicited.

If you are requesting a pack for someone else, we ask that you respect this person’s privacy and provide your name and address. The pack will be sent to you for delivery to your widowed person, by someone they know and trust.

Request a pack via the form below.

Please be aware that Newly Widowed Packs are posted once a week, and it may take a couple of weeks for the pack to reach you.

More about our Newly Widowed Packs

Our Newly Widowed Packs are mailed out free of charge and have been developed for those that are within the first year of widowhood.

They are a suite of hard-copy sheets containing information on different issues and challenges that are potentially faced when widowed young.

These packs have been designed and written by our young widowed community; they are the packs we wish we were given when we were newly widowed.

Help us by donating a pack.

Our Newly Widowed Packs are a free service that we provide for widowed people to help them navigate the challenges of the first year of widowhood. You can make a real difference by donating a pack, covering the cost of a life changing resource to be sent out to a widowed person. You can even dedicate a pack in someone’s memory. You can also make a general donation to First Light which can help us across all of our support programs.
