We’re all on this journey together, and we can’t achieve our ambition without you.

We actively encourage you to report any incidents of discrimination, bullying or harassment. This could be something that’s happened to you, or something you’ve witnessed. We encourage you to report this, no matter how big or small you feel the incident was, or if you’re not sure what happened counts as discrimination, bullying or harassment. In line with our Anti-bullying and harassment policy, you can report any incident to [email protected]
Explore diversity and inclusion
These activities and resources will support you to explore the ideas and issues that are raised in our plan. You can reflect on your own thoughts around the strategic plan or use parts of our programme to help girls talk about what inclusion means to them.

We’d love you to get chatting about our ambition in your units. You might want to do this by using these unit meetings activities. You can download these four activities for free so you can easily bring our plan to life in your unit. You can also find more activities from the topic Better together in unit meeting activity packs 6, 7 and 8
- Rainbows – Pizza party (PDF)
- Brownies – Fairest of them all (PDF)

For more activities for your unit, we recommend looking for unit meeting activities that sit in the Better together topic. You can find two activities from this topic in unit meeting activity packs 6, 7 and 8.
The Reflect skills builder will help girls explore their communities, cultures and reflect on their beliefs and values. And in the Feel good skills builder, they’ll develop healthy physical and mental wellbeing by exploring nutrition, being active, using stress management and relaxation techniques.
Girls can get creative with these interest badges at home and explore what it means to welcome everyone.
