Welcome to SI South West & Channel Islands
Soroptimist International South West and Channel Islands Region comprises 17 Soroptimist Clubs. Our Clubs spread geographically from Gloucestershire in the north and Wiltshire in the east, down to Cornwall in the deepest south west and include Guernsey and Jersey in the Channel Islands.
Here in the South West and Channel Islands we pride ourselves on the work – Projects – that our Clubs do at local, national and international level.

Soroptimist International has consultative status with the United Nations and so we are able to inform them on women’s issues, particularly relating to human rights and especially to improve the status of women and girls. We are able to raise awareness of global and local issues; and lobby collectively; and take action by service involvement and fund raising through social events.

The Soroptimist International Vision is that women and girls will achieve their individual and collective potential, realise aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong, peaceful communities worldwide.
Soroptimists’ Mission is to transform the lives and status of women and girls through education, empowerment and enabling opportunities.

Taking action by signing a petition can really make change happen. Petitions are a great way to get your views heard by Government, get Journalists to take notice or raise awareness about a certain issue. There are many different petitions in circulation, so the SIGBI Project Team has selected a few which they feel are right for Soroptimists to support.
Additionally, if you would like to contact your local MP about any issues, you can search for their details here.
