About Inner Wheel


About the Association of
Inner Wheel Clubs in Great Britain & Ireland

Inner Wheel is an all female organisation.

Inner Wheel has three Objectives:

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

FRIENDSHIP with SERVICE truly reflects a typical Inner Wheel Member.

The Association of Inner Wheel Clubs is like a wedding cake with tiers – the largest and most important tier is at grass roots level with our Clubs. Clubs are near you, in most towns and cities and large villages.These Clubs all have corresponding Rotary Clubs.

The next tier is at District level – there are 29 Districts that make up Great Britain and Ireland (GB&I).

The third tier is the GB&I Association; with a Governing Body and Executive Members representing all corners of Great Britain and Ireland. The fourth tier is International Inner Wheel, which represents 98,000 members from all the Inner Wheel Clubs in 103 Countries around the world.

The GB&I Association President 2018 – 2019 is Ann Acaster member of the Inner Wheel Club of York Vikings District 4, and her chosen charity for this year is Jessie’s Fund; a charity supporting seriously ill children, and children with special needs through the creative and therapeutic powers of music.

The 2018 /2019 International Inner Wheel President Christine Kirkby has chosen the theme for this year – Empower and Evolve.

The Inner Wheel Year is from 1st July until 30th June the following year.

At a District level each new Chairman selects a charity to be supported across the District. For 2018 – 2019 Linda Elkin our District Chairman has chosen support The Children’s Air Ambulance.
