Kibworth & Smeeton WI, June 2022

27th June 2022 | Clubs and Societies

Every May, WI's discuss a shortlist of resolutions before the national AGM in June, when we reach a final decision. We then send the chosen resolutions to the Government to request action. This year, the Kibworth & Smeeton WI only put one resolution forward. Women and Girls with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) and ADHD Under-Identified, Under-Diagnosed, Misdiagnosed and Under-Supported. Two committee members explained to members that in the past, only boys were considered to have these conditions, whereas in fact girls also have them in various forms. Members were able to discuss and ask questions before a vote, which passed the resolution. We then send a delegate to the AGM. If it is also passed at national level a full campaign will be developed to improve awareness and diagnosis, and to explore ways of supporting women and girls.
