Start a new group

We welcome requests from new or established members to set up new groups

If you opt for group membership and cannot find an established group to suit you, you may choose to set up a new group.

You may know women who would like to form a group with you, or NWR can put you in touch with women near you who may wish to join a new group.

New local organisers receive specific assistance from NWR staff and the members network. A comprehensive handbook detailing over 60 years’ experience of starting new NWR groups is available, and NWR staff are allocated to support efforts and provide materials.
