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.
