About us

‘Now we know that boys can be nurses as well as girls and girls can be firefighters, which I didn’t know.’
- Brownie

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.

Here is everything you need to know about us -  from the Promise that every girl makes, to how we’re run and what it’s like to work for us.
