Girl Guiding – We are the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK

We empower nearly half a million girls to be their best and face the challenges of growing up today. We’ve been doing that through adventure, friendship and fun for over 100 years.

Girl Guiding is dedicated to creating a better world for girls and young women

We empower girls, we give them space to grow and we ensure that each one of them can get involved – no matter what their background or ability.

Through fun, friendship, challenge and adventure we empower girls to find their voice, inspiring them to discover the best in themselves and to make a positive difference in their community.

We want all girls across the UK to have the space and opportunities they need to thrive, grow and give back to their communities

More than 400,000 girls already meet regularly as Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and The Senior Section. Together they learn skills, grow in confidence, make lifelong friendships, help their communities and have lots of fun.

Guiding is so much more than an after-school activity or a way for girls to spend an evening. Here’s why we are special.

We give girls a space just for them

We’re girls only. That means girls feel free to be themselves.

We won’t tell them an activity is ‘for boys’. Our girls get to score tries at rugby, go bouldering or simply play the games that they enjoy most.

We give girls somewhere they can talk openly about what affects their daily lives and get support from other girls like them.

Girls speak, then we listen and act

All girls in Girl Guiding get the chance to choose what they do – from Rainbows picking activities, to members of The Senior Section sitting on our Council.

Every year, our Girls’ Attitudes Survey gives girls and young women a chance to tell the world about the issues affecting them and what change they want to see. Then we plan campaigns with Advocate, our youth panel, and support girls to make that change happen.

Girls don’t stand still, so neither do we

Throughout our history, Girl Guiding has evolved as the needs of girls have changed.

We run giant music events just for our members like the BIG GIG and our girl-only festival Wellies and Wristbands.

At their regular meetings, girls take part in activities related to things that matter to them such as our Free Being Me body confidence badge.

Whoever you are, wherever you’re from – all girls are welcome

At Girl Guiding, we give all girls an equal sense of belonging.

Girls with additional needs are always included in guiding.

All members are invited to make their Promise to ‘be true to themselves and develop their own beliefs’. We welcome girls from every faith – and no faith.

We want to welcome more girls so we’re reaching out to new communities throughout the UK.
