The WI has a long history of campaigning on a wide range of issues. Explore some of our past campaigns and successes below. Although we are no longer focussing on these campaigns at a national level, we do occasionally return to them and take relevant action.
Our campaign focused on ensuring people with mental health problems get the right care for their condition through safer alternatives for prison.
We campaigned to enable carers to stay with people who are admitted into hospital with dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
The WI called on the government to increase investment in the training, employment and retention of midwives in England and Wales.
This campaign sought to raise awareness of the stark differences between the retail price of milk and the price paid to farmers.
