NFWI are running a survey on loneliness which should only take 10 minutes to complete. They are running it to help them to better understand what WI members think should be done to tackle loneliness.

All of your responses will be kept completely confidential. The results will be used to help NFWI to feed into the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness and contribute to the wider policy debate on these issues. For more information about the Commission please visit:  Jo Cox Loneliness 

Have your say by filling in the form online (link below) or emailing to request a paper copy.

The survey will close on 31 October 2017. If you have any questions, please email Alexandra Barker (

My WI & Digital WI Services Launched By NFWI

How can I help my WI members access this new service?


If you haven’t yet received a ‘Welcome to the Digital WI’ email with your ‘My WI’ login details, you can now request access to the site online. Simply go to and press the ‘Request Access’ button. Alternatively please call us on 020 7371 9300 and select option 0 to get set up over the phone.

‘My WI’, the dedicated WI membership site is now live. Find more information below.

What is My WI?

My WI is a new NFWI website that’s exclusive to WI members, to help them get the best from their membership. From the latest NFWI information and advice for running your WI, to campaigns actions and inspiring cookery, craft and floral design projects that have been specially designed for members – My WI is a one-stop-shop for everything a WI member needs to know.

When can I access it?

The website officially launched at the NFWI Annual Meeting on 7 June and all members have been gradually receiving detailed instructions explaining how to access the site since Monday 12 June.

If you haven’t yet received a ‘Welcome to the Digital WI’ email with your ‘My WI’ login details, you can now request access to the site online. Simply go to and press the ‘Request Access’ button. Please note to ensure your account is secure your personal information is verified manually, which may take up to 5 working days.

Alternatively please call us on 020 7371 9300 and select option 0 and we will be able to get you up and running over the phone.

Please ensure you have a valid email address registered on the MCS before requesting access, as this is the email address your Digital WI login details will be sent to. You can contact your MCS Rep or Federation if you are unsure.

How do I login?

An email will be sent to the email address registered on your MCS record. Follow the steps outlined in the email to create a secure ‘Digital WI’ password. Once your password has been set you will be able to use your account to access both the MCS and My WI. The MCS (Membership Communications System) is the secure WI database that holds members’ details and enables communication throughout the organisation. It is important that the information on your MCS record is always up to date. With a Digital WI account you will have full control of your information.

Why do I need an email address and password to use My WI?

All the membership news, campaigns actions and projects on My WI are exclusive and provided as an additional benefit to help members get the most from the WI. Having a login means only members can access them.

What if I am already an MCS user? (WI MCS Rep etc.)

If you are already an MCS user and have a password, you won’t need to do anything. You can access My WI now using your existing MCS username and password. Simply visit to get started.

For more information about My WI, you can download this leaflet from the Communications department.
