What is Girlguiding?

GG 2013 Logo


With over half a million members in the UK alone Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK. Thanks to the dedication and support of over 100,000 amazing volunteers, we are active in every part of the UK, giving girls and young women a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities. We build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good.

Girlguiding is made up of 4 sections, Rainbows (aged 5-7), Brownies (aged 7-10), Guides (aged 10-14) and Senior Section (aged 15-25); with each section being supported by an array of adult volunteers.
