Welcome to the Leicestershire & Rutland

The Leicestershire and Rutland Federation was formed in 1918. We have expanded since then and currently have 116 WIs through the two counties. These range from small village ones with a few members to larger ones with over 100 members – so whatever your age or interests, there is sure to be a WI not too far away from you waiting to welcome you.

All the different WIs offer fun and friendship and a chance to learn new skills. There is usually a speaker at the monthly meetings, and time to socialise with fellow members. Other activities, such as walks, outings or craft groups feature on the WI calendar depending on the interests of the members. If you are new to an area, it is a wonderful way to make friends.

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. The staff at our newly refurbished offices in Leicester 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!
