Welcome to SI Swindon and District
Who are we?
Soroptimist International is an organisation of women who work to improve the lives of women and girls. It was launched 100 years ago and there are now clubs in most countries of the world.
The Swindon club was established in 1960 and is now a small group of women of varying ages. We are actively seeking new members to join us. We need the enthusiasm and dynamism of younger women as well as the experience and wisdom of those who are older. Contact us today to find out more and perhaps arrange an informal chat or attend a meeting.
What do we do?
Our members work together and in partnership with others, to assist women and girls to have a safe and fulfilling life. Our principal activity is Programme Action which involves us in various projects for the benefit of women. You can catch up with what we’ve done recently on Facebook.
We hold occasional speaker meetings where we learn more about charities we support both in the UK and overseas; or cover interesting topics such as Wiltshire Air Ambulance and the Archive at Trowbridge, often by Zoom, to attract a wider audience. Non-members are welcome. Please see our Upcoming Events page to find out more about our next scheduled speaker meeting.
We are committed to a world where women and girls can achieve their individual and collective potential, realize aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong peaceful communities worldwide. We work for change through direct involvement in local, national and international projects.
Who can join?
We come from various backgrounds. Some of us work full time, some part time and some as volunteers. We welcome new members of any age, race or creed who have a social conscience and feel they want to ‘give something back’. Together we can utilize our collective talents.
Although based in Swindon we also welcome members who come from outlying villages and towns such as Royal Wootton Bassett, Marlborough, Devizes, Highworth and Wroughton.
Now is the time when new members can help us to achieve even greater change. Contact us to find out more.
