The WI 

Inspiring women - then and now

The WI is a unique organisation shaped by its members. In 1915, they set out to give women a voice and to be a force for good in the community.

 Today, they are the largest women’s organisation in the UK and they pride themselves on being a trusted place for all women of all generations, to share experiences and learn from each other.

A WI membership offers the opportunity to meet women in your local area in-person and virtually, to make friends and make a difference in your community.
