Public Affairs

Public Affairs

The aim of this Sub-Committee is to keep members up-to-date on matters of public concern.

We advise, initiate and undertake to follow up work on National and County mandates of social concern, including the National Green Hearts campaign and International Women’s Day.

The Sub-Committee includes the following Norfolk Federation appointments: ACWW Representative, Carers & Health Matters, Environment Officer, Climate Ambassador, and Resolutions Co-ordinator

So that our voice is heard, the Federation has appointed Committee members to represent the WI in other organisations: these include Age UK Norfolk, Norfolk Carers and the Norfolk Bus Forum.

We arrange events on diverse topics such as science and the environment, health and home, and women’s affairs locally and globally. The annual Women Walk the World, part of ACWW, is a popular event organised by the Committee.

One of our most important jobs is to guide WIs through the Resolutions, organising information days for members, with experts to give us more background information before we cast our votes.

Please write in if we can help you in any way.
