Soroptimist International - Epsom and District

Soroptimist International of Epsom and District is part of a worldwide organisation of women, which is linked to the United Nations.

Welcome to Soroptimists International Epsom & District – a local member of the International Soroptimist family of women supporting women.

We are a friendly, dedicated group of women from various backgrounds and of different ages, doing our bit to help women who may be suffering from abuse, suppression, lack of freedom, lack of education, and poverty. Women less fortunate than ourselves – whoever they are.

As members of our global organisation, Soroptimist International, we try in any way we can, to raise awareness, develop a wider understanding of the issues, raise funds, lobby the powerful, and offer aid, assistance and protection to all our sisters in need.

We welcome visitors and warmly invite new members.

If you like what you see, if you feel any empathy with our aims, then why not scroll down to investigate the things we do, and check out our Facebook  or Twitter pages?

We need your help.

We need your ideas.

Do join us.

What do we do?

We use our time and skills to benefit women and girls. But it isn’t all work! Members have fun and find friendship and mutual support when needed. There are opportunities to develop knowledge, skills, experiences and to achieve goals personally and as a group.

The pandemic has enabled us to move away from traditional meetings and events and develop a programme of virtual meetings and activities.  We have supported members to develop the use of Zoom.

Our fortnightly meetings on Zoom include: discussion, speakers, fundraising events and a Christmas Social. There is additional contact through one to one support  and small group social activities to reduce isolation and enable members to socialise. You can view some of our Club Activities in this video.
