Soroptimists in Great Britain & Ireland

Soroptimist International Federation Great Britain & Ireland SIGBI

The Federation of Great Britain & Ireland was established in 1934 when Britain split away from the rest of Europe and became the third Federation of Soroptimist International after America and Europe. Extension progressed rapidly, and many clubs were formed.

In June 1935 it was decided to form  9 Divisional Unions (DU) in the United kingdom – Each DU sending a representative to Federation meetings. Over time these 9 Divisional Unions changed shape and in 1975 became the 17 Regions of the United Kingdom
