Kate Siegler, WAY Member

Kate Siegler

Appointed March 2019 

"I was widowed 10 weeks after I married. In the early dark days, I desperately searched online for a ‘holy grail’ of how to survive. What I found wasn’t a manual, but WAY, and a community of wonderfully supportive people in a similar situation to me who ‘got it’. Being a member of WAY has given me a fantastic amount of support and I’ve made some life-long friends. As I was widowed without children and am part of the widowed and very young community, I also represent these communities in my role as a trustee.

In my professional life I have been an independent consultant since 2012, running my own company and working with clients on their digital and IT business transformation objectives. 

As a WAY trustee, I welcome the opportunity it gives to invest my skills and experience, back into the charity that has given me so much.

I aim to support WAY to grow and reach everyone eligible to join us, as well as to continue to support the growing community of existing members."

You don't have to face widowhood alone.

If you've lost your partner before your 51st birthday and live in the UK – whether you were married or not, with or without children, whatever your sexual orientation, race or religion – you are welcome to join us.

Joining up to WAY takes minutes and costs just £25 a year, which can be paid either by direct debit or PayPal.
