The Guide Association

The Guide Association is the UK’s largest girl-only youth organisation. Girlguiding is a charitable organisation and ran by volunteers, to give the next generation a range of different experiences and challenges. There’s so much more to guiding than the weekly unit meetings – so whatever your skills, commitments and interests you’ll be able to get involved in a way that’s perfect for you.

You don’t need to have been involved in guiding before or have loads of spare time to get involved and make a big difference. By volunteering at unit meetings you can run (along with a team), exciting activities, games, projects and events that give girls the chance to discover their potential, learn about the world around them and earn badges and awards. You can choose to work with girls in Rainbows (Age 5 – 7), Brownies (Age 7 – 10), Guides (Age 10 – 14) or Rangers (Age 14 – 18).

If you’d like to become a leader of a guiding group, you’ll be supported to complete our Leadership qualification, with training on everything from planning your programme to child safety or just become a unit helper.
