Get involved with Women for Independence

There are lots of ways you can get involved with Women for Independence, whether you want to become active in your local group, or just receive our monthly newsletter.

Please read our privacy policy first, then click on heading of anything that interests you for further info (opens in a new window).  


1. Join Women for Independence  

WFI members elect the National Committee every two years and have a say in the running of the organisation.  Joining will give you access to the Members Only area of this website, where we post minutes of meetings and other reports, as well as resources for local groups to use.  We send out occasional e-mails to members only, and we are totally reliant upon membership fees to keep the organisation going.


2. Sign up for our Monthly Newsletter

We send out a short newsletter by e-mail updating on our latest news and views.  This is usually about once a month.  You don't need to be a member to sign up for the newsletter; you don't even need to be a woman.  


3.   Help us by making a donation

Whether you're a member or not, we are always really grateful to receive donations to help us keep going.   In particular, we'd love it if you would consider making a small regular monthly donation, as then we know that we can keep going month after month. 


4.  Find out about your local group

We have local groups across Scotland.  Find out more about your local group and maybe even join them! You are welcome to get involved with as many local groups as you like.  You'll find contact details for all our local groups on the page if you want to get in touch with them directly.

Would you like to start a local group yourself?  - We can help you with that too. Groups are able to organise as it suits them, some meet regularly, others on a more casual basis and the decide what activities that they want to do.  If you would like to find out more then email us at [email protected] or click on the link above for a guide to starting a local group.


5.  Come along to one of our forthcoming events

We have meetings, events and gatherings across Scotland, and the list is always changing.
