Oxfordshire Federation of Women's Institutes


Chairman, Pauline Goddard, and the Oxfordshire Federation of Women's Institutes (OFWI) welcome you to our website.

We are part of the National Federation of Women's Institutes - the largest voluntary organisation for women in the UK with over 211,000 members in 69 Federations throughout England, Wales and the Islands.

In Oxfordshire we have over 4,600 members spread across approx 140 WIs around the county.

The year 2015 was a very busy time for OFWI as we were celebrating the Centenary of the WI.  We have been contacted by many people showing an intertest in joining our Federation beacuse of the media interest raised during this time.

We are continuing to arrange events for our members, new and old. We are extremely keen to intrigrate the new members with the current members so that we can all look forward to the next 100 years. 

If you would like to send a message to Pauline or the Board of Trustees, you can do so by clicking on Contact Us

We are also on Facebook and Twitter where you can find our latest news and photos. 

We look forward to meeting you at a WI event very soon.
