MISSION, MOTTO AND VALUES
Since 1946, Australian War Widows NSW has promoted and protected the interests of war widows in NSW. Today, AWWNSW offers services, support and advocacy for all women and families united by defence service.
AWWNSW is an independent and inclusive organisation who supports, and is a voice for, veterans and their families to help them navigate life in and out of service. We are guided by our principles of lead, empower, grow.
Australian War Widows NSW’s motto was adopted by the national Guild in 1949 at its third annual conference to set the mood, tone, harmony and the working together of the conference and the Guild.
“We all belong to each other. We all need each other. It is in serving each other and in sacrificing for our common good that we are finding our true life.” King George VI, extract from 1941 Christmas message
Respect, Inclusivity, Compassion, Community and Collaboration.
