2017 Shortlisted Resolution No 1 – Alleviating loneliness

Over 91,000 shortlist selections were received from members, and the top two resolutions will now go forward to the Annual Meeting in Liverpool in June.

All WIs get one vote for each resolution. This means we shouldn’t vote for one resolution over the other, but should vote for or against each one independently. If both resolutions are passed at the AM, the NFWI will campaign on both issues.

Alleviating loneliness    

This meeting calls on every WI and the NFWI to work alongside health and social care providers and their local community to raise awareness of the causes and impacts of loneliness, thus ensuring better identification of lonely people in order to be able to offer them the appropriate assistance and support.

Please read the attached resolution notes for more details on the proposal. Alleviating-loneliness-Annual-Meeting-resolution-notes
