The WI is all about inspiring women. It’s a rich source of experiences, knowledge and skills passed down through generations and updated every day.

The WI is everything you want it to be- The WI is naturally diverse. It offers all kinds of opportunities to all kinds of women. For some women we offer an opportunity to catch up with friends, for others its a route to learning new skills, and, for some the campaigning aspect of the organisation may be the key motivation.

The WI is what you make it!

The WI comes in all shapes and sizes.We offer women the opportunity to join and be involved in the way that suits them.
