At each of our monthly meetings, we arrange a collection for Southwark Foodbank. More details about our collections, the foodbank scheme and ways in which you can help can be found by clicking on the heading.
Since 2018, we have also started to collect for The Red Box Project which aims to ensure that no girl misses school as a result of her period. More details can be found by clicking on the heading.
2018 marks a century since members passed the first WI resolution. On 24 October 1918 at the NFWI’s second Annual Meeting, WI members passed the WI’s first resolution, calling for the provision of a sufficient supply of convenient and sanitary houses. A full list of all of the campaigns from the last 100 years can be downloaded in this document. (You may need to be logged into My WI to access this document – please see here for how to sign up now)
This was just the beginning. Over the last 100 years, WI members have campaigned on an incredible range of social policy, health, food and agriculture, education, environment and international causes. By exerting their individual and collective influence, WI members have increased public awareness of the issues and brought about important policy changes.
The video below explores the WI’s campaigning history and focuses on some of the organisation’s key campaigns.
Please see our dedicated page for information on all of the current NFWI campaigns.
