Welcome to the Scottish Women’s Rural Institutes
(SWRI), one of the largest educational organisations for women, with over 830 branches throughout Scotland.
We offer women of all ages the opportunity
to learn new skills, take part in a wide variety of activities from art, crafts and cookery to choral singing, debating and dancing, all of which offer friendship and fun and the chance to get to know your neighbours. Every federation works to enhance local community life and constantly strives to preserve the quality of rural living.
SWRI was formed back in 1917 with two main aims, to advance the education and training of those who live and work in the country, or are interested in country life, in home skills, family welfare and citizenship and to promote the preservation of Scotland's traditions and its rural heritage.
You are never too young or too old to join! No experience is necessary in sewing, knitting or cooking! If you are not already a member, then why not give SWRI a try? You will
be made most welcome at all institutes.
If you have any questions or would like more information on how you can become an SWRI member, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.swri.org.uk.
