Our impact

Find out how we empower girls to experience life-changing adventures, to achieve their potential and be their best

We are proud to make a positive impact on the lives of girls and young women across the UK

We have more than 100,000 amazing volunteers - along with our fantastic supporters - who make that happen. What we do makes a difference to the lives of all girls and young women across the UK - not just our members.

Our impact in 2017

2017 was an inspiring, fun-filled, action-packed year, where we continued to change the lives of girls and young women across the UK.

We have lots to celebrate including hosting the first ever winter survival camp Sparkle and Ice, increasing volunteer enquiries by 111% through our volunteer recruitment campaign and opening brand new units – plus so much more!

Our impact in 2016

We made 2016 a target-beating, action-packed, life-changing year for hundreds of thousands of girls and young women across the UK.

2016 was definitely a year to celebrate. We started to develop a new programme of activities for girls, challenged perceptions through our first ever awareness-raising campaign and even created the UK’s largest girl-led advocacy network – and that’s just for starters!
