You & Widowhood

Plan today for tomorrow

Our History

Y&W (You and Widowhood Ltd) is a not-for-profit organisation established in Sydney, Australia in 2013 by Mrs Cameron-Salteri, who having recently lost her husband, found herself disillusioned by the lack of practical and easily accessible information to help her in the weeks and months that followed.  

Despite much preparation and discussion with her husband before his death, navigating her way through the legal and financial maze she found herself in after his death was more daunting than she could have imagined. Discussions with other widows and widowers, confirmed for her that she was not alone in this experience. It was from these early experiences that Roslyn Cameron-Salteri decided that there was a need for an organisation to help people such as herself access practical help, and so You and Widowhood (Y&W) began.

Since that time, many people have spoken with Roslyn Cameron-Salteri and have accessed our checklists and our information. All tell us that they find them very helpful. 

From those early beginnings Y&W has grown and is now being approached by a wide variety of people who are interested in planning for their own futures or the future of someone they provide care for. 

We speak regularly to hospital social workers, carer support groups, retirement village residents and others. It has been through the discussions at the end of these talks that Y&W has continued to ensure that the information they provide is not only relevant but easy to use. 

It has been both pleasing and reassuring to have received significant support for our work, from a number of like minded organisations and professionals all with broad experience in health, business, philanthropy and pastoral care. Their contributions and feedback has been greatly appreciated and we thank them for their belief in our vision.
