GUILD MEMBERSHIP

BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP

The Guild provides understanding, contact, and friendship with other war widows, as well as a range of benefits and services to its members.

The Guild has achieved significant improvements to the assistance provided to war widows through its advocacy over the years. A wide range of benefits and concessions have been achieved. The Guild advocates on behalf of war widows to the Commonwealth, NSW and local governments and to other organizations. Guild officials also participate in a number of consultative forums on behalf of war widows, which can improve the arrangements for war widows.

The Guild offers friendship to members through:

 Guild events:

The Guild also provides to members:

  • Quarterly colour magazine, the Guild Digest (also available on CD for those who are sight impaired)

WHO CAN BECOME A MEMBER OF THE GUILD?

Membership is open to DVA designated war widows and defence widows, whose spouses or partners have died as a result of their war, defence or peace-keeping service.  War widows recognised as such by other allied countries may also join the Guild.

WHEN DOES MEMBERSHIP CEASE?

A membership ceases when a member resigns her membership, if the member dies, if she ceases to be a war widow or if she does not pay her annual subscription fee.
