Resolutions 2019

Following the Resolution Short List selection process the top two resolutions have been chosen to go forward to the NFWI Annual Meeting in Bournemouth on 5th June 2019.

WIs should discuss and vote on both these resolutions at their May meetings.  The form for recording their votes FOR or AGAINST each resolution should be sent to their delegate's WI immediately after the May meeting.  See below for Guidelines on taking these meetings.

A call against the decline in local bus services

Over the last decade there has been a massive decline in the number of bus services, particularly of those in rural and semi-rural areas. In order to alleviate loneliness, improve health and wellbeing, as well as promoting sustainable development, the NFWI calls on the government and local authorities to increase subsidies and work in partnership with bus companies and community transport operators to enable an adequate provision of services.

Don’t fear the smear

Cervical screening saves around 5,000 lives a year, yet attendance is currently at its lowest for a decade. The NFWI urges WI members to attend routine screening, to take action to raise awareness of the importance of cervical screening and address barriers to attendance to help eradicate cervical cancer.
