Welcome to the Staffordshire Federation

Helen Mancey is Chairman for The Staffordshire Federation of WIs. Helen is a member of Caverswall and Cookshill WI and Tean WI. She has been a member of the WI since 1979.

Helen is a WI Adviser and Chairman of the Member Support Committee. Helen also sits on the Education and Public Affairs Committee.

The Staffordshire Federation was formed in 1919 and covers a very diverse area, from the rugged Staffordshire Moorlands in the north, Cannock Chase to the south, and across to the east, where the three spires of Lichfield Cathedral dominate the skyline over the picturesque old city.

Staffordshire currently has around 3,500 members and 111 WIs spread across the county with a wide range of types. One of our WIs will suit you, whatever your age, diversity or interests. Try a few to find one that suits your needs, a welcome and friendship awaits you. WIs and the Federation arrange a lot of inspiring speakers and educational activities.

Opportunities are available to all members at WI level, Federation Level and at National level. The opportunity to become involved in organizing The WI at local or Federation level is open to any member. The deeper you become in The WI the more rewarding it is for members, so this is something that we wholeheartedly encourage.

The Cornerstone, our Federation office in Stafford, is the hub of activities. The staff will be very happy to help with all enquiries and assist potential new members to find a WI to suit them.

Come and join us in Staffordshire! Contact us for further information, we look forward to hearing from you!
