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

Calling all avid readers ... we have a large quantity of The Unlikeliest Packer books which we would like to pass on to our members and WIs.
We have plenty to go around and so you could give one to each of your members or perhaps the members of your WI book club, or they would make great raffle prizes. Alternatively individual members are very welcome to pop in and collect a copy.
To arrange collection just email Sarah at admin@wfwi.co.uk
