Welcome to AWS International Women’s Group

AWS International Women’s Group is an organization of like-minded international women seeking to make purposeful connections with each other, while providing philanthropic support to local charities that are truly making a difference in the lives of others. While originally founded by Americans, women of all nationalities are warmly invited to join this incredibly diverse group. We proudly welcome members from six continents representing over twenty nationalities.


To help meet the social needs of our varied expat community, we meet monthly as an entire membership and also offer 16 Activity Groups and volunteer opportunities that provide extensive opportunities for adventures, classes, trips and giving back so you can easily meet new people, fill up your social calendar, make a difference to those in need, and create a support system that is critical for an expat. Once you become a member, you will be able to access our online calendar and start joining in activities that interest you.

Connection: AWS Annual Guidebook

Every year, AWS International Women’s Group publishes an eagerly anticipated guidebook for our members. If you are new to the area and are trying to find contacts for the myriad of services you need to get your family established in Surrey, this guide is full of resources that will help you do just that. We also publish information about our club, the charity slate we support, activities that might interest you, and things to do in the area. Our Welcoming or Membership Chairs can provide you with a hard copy or you can access it online when you login as a member.


Philanthropy is at the core of who we are at AWS International Women’s Group. Our charities make an immediate and lasting impact in the lives of local people in need. Through them, we present our members with the opportunity to give back and make a difference in a world desperate for acts of kindness and generosity. Our annual Gift Fayre is entering its 30th year in 2020. To date, AWS International Women' Group has raised and donated over 750,000GBP in funds and gifts in kind to more than 150 local charities with causes including homelessness, domestic violence, family support, physical and mental illnesses, brain injury and hospice care.
