Welcome to the Scottish Women’s Institutes. Scotland’s leading member based organisation created by women in 1917, designed to bring women together, with a vision to welcome every woman in Scotland to join us.

We are here to educate, to share, to campaign, to learn, to socialise, to build a community and of course, to have fun.

From life skills and arts and crafts to raising awareness of current affairs affecting women and helping inform government issues, the SWI is proud of its heritage and our future vision.

Be part of the SWI. Join us to learn how to make that perfect scone… and a bit more too!

You are never too young or too old to join! No experience is necessary in sewing, knitting or cooking! If you are not already a member, then why not give SWI a try? You will be made most welcome at all institutes.

If you have any questions or would like more information on how you can become an SWI member, please get in touch.
