Welcome to the website for the Worcestershire Federation. The Federation was formed in 1918. The WI has thrived over the years and is today a vibrant and forward looking organisation. We have WIs all over the county of Worcestershire. Click onto “find a WI” and if there is not one near you contact us - we are always looking for opportunities to form new ones.
The WI is an excellent way to become more involved in your local community and to make new
friends. The Federation organises many events; talks, day schools, visits and activities which appeal to as wide a cross section of members as possible. It is all part of the WI ethos, which is to offer opportunities for enjoyable learning for life.
If you would like to find out more please go to the WI House page of this website where there are full details of how to contact us.
