Welcome to the Warwickshire Federation of Women’s Institutes

The WI is a democratic, social and educational charity that provides numerous opportunities to make new friends, learn a variety of new skills and to develop skills you already have!

Warwickshire Federation consists of 94 individual WIs, each meeting at least once a month, and providing speakers and workshops on a variety of topics. There is something for everyone, no matter what your interest including crafts, outings, poetry or drama.

If you’re new to Warwickshire or the WI, please take a look at Find your Nearest WI for contact details and meeting dates.


We are part of the largest women’s organisation in Great Britain, and we are non-political and non-sectarian. Our members include women of all ages, backgrounds and interests.

This #AntiSlaveryDay there are more victims of human trafficking than ever before. If we’re going to reverse the trend, those in power need to listen to the experiences of survivors. Help us get their voices heard. #timetolisten #coalitiontostopslavery https://t.co/osQ0rIlWcv

See the Signs – Craftivism competition

As part of our campaign on ovarian cancer ‘See the Signs’, we have launched a new craftivism competition.

To enter, members are invited to make something that represents the WI’s ovarian cancer campaign and will help to spread awareness of the key signs to look out for.

There are no restrictions on the type of medium or materials you can use, but try to upcycle what you already have where you can. Entries will be judged by Nicky Amos, Chair of the NFWI Public Affairs Committee, and Gemma Hodgkiss, Communications Manager at gynae-oncology research charity GRACE.

The judges will consider the creativity of each entry and how well it communicates the key messages of the resolution.

The winning submission will be featured in a spring 2022 issue of WI Life, and across our social media channels. There will also be an online exhibition of submissions.

This competition is open to all WI members. You can submit an entry as an individual, on behalf of your WI or federation, or together with your local community.

Please submit a photo of your entry to the NFWI Public Affairs Department by email (pa@nfwi.org.uk) or by post. You do not need to send the actual project. We would love to hear the story behind your artwork as well. Let us know what inspired you to create it, and the process you undertook to complete it.

The deadline for submissions is 31 January 2022.
