What is the WI?
The WI was formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communities and encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War. Since then the organisation's aims have broadened and the WI is now the largest voluntary women's organisation in the UK. The WI celebrated its centenary in 2015 and currently has almost 220,000 members in approximately 6,300 WIs.

With its original roots in rural and agricultural communities, it now embraces the interests of women in both rural and urban communities. It is based on the ideals of fellowship, truth, tolerance and justice. The WI plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.

The WI is all about inspiring women. It's a rich source of experiences, knowledge and skills. It offers all kinds of opportunities to all kinds of women. The WI comes in all shapes and sizes. We offer women the opportunity to join and be involved in the way that suits them.

Your local WI provides an opportunity, first and foremost, for women of all ages to get together for a sociable evening, to swap ideas and experiences, learn new skills and listen to a guest speaker or demonstrator.
