Campaigning for war widows in the 21st century

War Widows Annual Remembrance Service 2017
Mary Moreland, Chairman of the War Widows Association, will discuss the charity’s history and its role in campaigning for equality for all war widows in Great Britain.

Since its formation in 1971, the War Widows Association has achieved many milestone improvements in the life conditions of war widows and their dependants, including in pensions and benefits.

Today, the charity has more than 4,000 members and continues to campaign for equality and fairness for all war widows and widowers. Over the decades, it has evolved and is now built on three pillars: campaigning, caring and remembering.

Mary Moreland has been Chairman of the War Widows Association since 2017, a Trustee of the charity since 2010, and a war widow since 1988.
