Meet the Chief Guide

Introducing our Chief Guide and Chair of Trustees

Could you be our next chief guide?

We're currently recruiting for our next Chief Guide. As our most senior volunteer this is a chance to shape the future of Girlguiding.

We’ve recently made some changes to the role of Chief Guide too. In the past, our Chief Guide has also been the Chair of the Board of Trustees. With Girlguiding growing as an organisation and with the increasing importance of good charity governance and regulation, this role has become too big for one person. So we've now split the role into the two separate roles of Chief Guide and Chair of Trustees. Find out more about the decision and new roles.

Valerie Le Vaillant was Chief Guide from 28 May 2016 to 9 March 2017 when she stepped down from the role due to family health problems.
