Ageing without children
I just found out about this organisation AWOC - Ageing Without Children. AWOC.ORG
They have an excellent website and a Facebook group too which I have just asked to join. I will let you know more as I interact with the groups members. A much needed organisation in my book.
Here is what they say about the organisation:
AWOC is a UK based organisation aimed at people over the age of 50 without children. This includes people who are without children in later life by choice, circumstance, infertility, bereavement, estrangement, distance or any other reason. We have members from all over the world so please join in. You are more than welcome to join if you're under 50 but a lot of talk will be around issues associated with ageing. The numbers of people ageing without children is increasing and by 2030 there will be 2 million people over 65 without children.
Worth looking into if you are over 50 and childless,for whatever reason.
I’ll see you there.
