What is Inner Wheel?

Inner Wheel is women in action, working together to make a difference and improve lives.

The objectives of Inner Wheel are to:

  • promote true friendship
  • encourage the ideals of personal service
  • foster international understanding

Inner Wheel is one of the largest women's service organisations in the world with 19,000 members in Great Britain & Ireland and over 100,000 from more than 103 countries across the globe.

We work together giving humanitarian aid nationally and internationally. We help people by extending the hand of friendship and we work on projects that are truly life changing. All this is done with fun and friendship! There is no other group like it..

A Brief History

For many years prior to 1924 when we really start our history, wives of Rotarians in many cities and towns throughout the country shared their husbands' concerns for public welfare and voluntarily supported their charitable activities. Since Rotary membership at that time was open to men only, this support was often in the background. Increasingly though, a drive was building toward finding a way for these women to express their compassion in a tangible way that was separate from the Rotary organisation itself.

So then on 15th September 1923 a group of ladies called a meeting at Herriott's Turkish Baths in Deansgate Manchester for the purpose of setting up a club of their own and 27 ladies attended. Inner wheel formally began on the 10th January 1924 when Mrs Margaret Goulding presided over a club formed of Rotarian wives. The roots of the now International Inner Wheel were established in 1934 when the Association of Inner Wheel Clubs in Great Britain and Ireland was formed.
