The following two shortlisted resolutions will now be put to a vote of delegates at the 2016 Annual Meeting in Brighton:
Avoid food waste, address food poverty
The WI calls on all supermarkets to sign up to a voluntary agreement to avoid food waste, thereby passing surplus food on to charities thus helping to address the issue of increasing food poverty in the UK.
Appropriate care in hospitals for people with dementia
We call upon HM Government and the NHS to provide facilities to enable carers to stay with people with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia that have been admitted into hospital.
Final briefing notes and further resources to help you and your WIs debate these resolutions will follow in the March mailing. They will also be made available at the end of March on the WI Moodle and the NFWI website.
