Soroptimist International Skipton-in-Craven, is part of Soroptimist International Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI).  SIGBI members work at a local, national and international level to educate, empower and enable opportunities for women and girls.

Our club was founded in 1949. We are women who want to make a difference and who care about the issues which affect women and girls.

We have the luxury of our own club-room where we meet twice a month on a Monday evening at 7.30pm.  One meeting is for business and the other for speakers and/or events.

Please  have a look at our website and do get in touch if you would like to know more about our organisation and our aims.
