The Members Advisory Team or MAT as it’s often referred to, comprises the WI Advisers, (some of whom are Federation Trustees), Trainee WI Advisers and MAT helpers. WI Advisers are voluntary WI members who have undergone training provided by the NFWI, which enables them to help and support members in every aspect of their WI life. They provide the vital link between WIs, Federation and the National levels of the organisation. For more information click here.
MAT is a fully inclusive team offering flexible working for any member to train as an Adviser regardless of her work, family or care commitments.
