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 108 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. Warwickshire Federation has WIs in towns and villages throughout the county. Each local WI meets monthly and has a wide programme of events.

Your views count! The NFWI is conducting a poll to establish the extent to which WI members and members of the public donate to food banks and other community food aid organisations. Irrespective of whether or not you have donated to a food aid organisation in the past, we would like to hear from you.

The poll will take no longer than two minutes of your time and will help us better understand the degree to which the public are contributing to efforts to alleviate food poverty.

It is open to WI members and members of the public, please share among your networks.

The poll can be found here: thewi.org.uk/s/foodpoll
