World Childless Week encourages anyone dealing with the grief of being childless to join a support group. Being amongst others who understand your grief can validate your emotions and allow you to realise you are not alone. Each support group has a different ethos so take some time to read the groups full description on their page to ensure it is the right one for you at this moment in time.  

Please note that in order to join these groups many (if not all) will have pre-set entry questions. Your answers help the admins to ensure the group is right for you, and you are right for the group.

Ageing Without Children

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. 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.

Being Fruitful Without Multiplying (Childfree and Childless)

Being Fruitful without Multiplying started as a collaboration of three women sharing their stories about living a life without procreation. If you are Childfree or Childless - you are welcomed to join our Facebook group to share your thoughts, feelings, and experiences about living a life without procreation. In the privacy of our CLOSED FORUM you can feel comfortable expressing yourself with others like you, share articles and book recommendations, or even just rant!

Childless Christians

Being childless is isolating enough, and then more often than not, we lack the kind of support we need because talking about God and the bible isn't allowed in most groups. This is a place for childless men and women of faith to come and talk together. Posts are not REQUIRED to be religious, or about God, this is just a place where topics about God are ALLOWED. You must however be Christian, and if it is found out that you are a non-Christian who is trying to stumble and cause more heartache to believers you will be removed. To ensure a speedy acceptance please answer the entry questions or contact an admin directly.

Childless By Circumstance, Not By Choice

This page is created for ladies, with a special hole in their heart. They have no earthly children. Ladies are welcome to share their heart, anger, and feelings with no judgement. As much as we know other mommy's out there love us... they cannot fully understand- as they have child(ren) to hold.

The Childless Life

This private group is for women who are coming to terms with their childlessness. This is a safe space for us to talk about heartbreak, stupid things people say to you when they learn we don't have kids, etc....and all without the fear of someone asking you the dreaded question "do you have kids). We are also creating a safe space to talk about what brings you joy (even if it seems impossible). Let's talk.

Childless Path To Acceptance (no ttc talk)

This is a safe place for women and men who are "childless NOT by choice" and who aren't actively TTC... even if you are hoping for a miracle. When it's time to move on and embrace the life you have, not the life you envisioned but need a little help getting there. We're friends who understand and want to reach acceptance of where we are. This is our journey...

Childless Support (No Longer TTC)

This is a group for women (no men) who cannot have children. If you are TTC'ing, are pregnant, already have a child (or children), but have "secondary infertility" , or have adopted children, this is not the place for you. Step-parents, foster parents, and those raising their nieces/nephews/siblings/cousins will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Nor is this a "Childfree By Choice" group. Anyone who falls into ANY of those categories will be removed. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Walking Forward Inspirational Network

We are a business based group so you can network with men and women (mostly women!) who are involuntary childless on any subject. Think of our group as a business networking group without the mumtreprenuers. We keep it private. The network is a safe place for people to vent, confess, cry, and share struggles, so we can help each other the best we can. We show love, compassion and support for people when they are overwhelmed and frustrated. Being an inspirational is not always easy. There are down times too.
