Welcome to the Leicestershire & Rutland
Federation of Women's Institutes

The Leicestershire & Rutland Federation was formed in 1918. We now have 111 WIs serving 3700 Leicestershire and Rutland members. Whatever your age or interests, there is sure to be a WI not too far away waiting to welcome you.

WIs offer fun and friendship, a chance for adventure and to learn new skills. WIs meet monthly and have events throughout the year. There is usually a speaker or workshop at the monthly meetings and a time to socialise with fellow members. Activities, such as lunches, walks, events or craft groups are offered, depending on the interests of the members. If you are new to an area, it is a wonderful way to make friends.

The WI is here to inspire you!

The Federation sub-committees also offer members a varied programme of events on topics such as health, science, public affairs, leisure activities, art, crafts and cookery. As a member of the WI, you can be part of a committee to shape the programme and make the WI everything you want it to be.

The staff at our offices in Belgrave will be very happy to help you find a WI to suit you or put you in touch with a WI Adviser who can help you start a new one!
