The Royal Navy

Together with the Royal Navy, we want to inspire girls and young women to have adventures and explore new places.

Our Future Girl research shows girls want to be able to have adventures without worrying about being treated differently because they’re girls.

Girlguiding and the Royal Navy’s partnership will provide girls with skills such as navigating on land and at sea, empowering them to have adventures and challenge these gender stereotypes.

How we’re working together

The Royal Navy are sponsoring the Explore skills builder and sharing their expertise in exploration, navigation and survival skills to encourage girls to have adventures.

By completing the activities in the different stages of the Explore skills builder, girls will develop skills in discovery, exploration, and map reading, gaining the knowledge and inspiration to travel and explore new places when we’re able to. The activities are part of our programme, designed by Girlguiding with input from girls, volunteers and parents.

Even though life is different right now and we can’t go out in the same way as before, there are still ways to have adventure closer to home.

Take a look at the advice on adapting activities to seehow some of the activities in the Explore skills builder, among others, can be completed virtually or socially distanced when restrictions allow.

The Royal Navy protects the UK and acts as a force for good and a peacekeeper across the globe - whether on land, air or sea.

It’s more than 100 years since the creation of the Women’s Royal Naval Service, and in 1993 the branch was integrated into the Royal Navy to unify as one. The Royal Navy champion equality of opportunity for all and are an ideal partner to work with us to support girls to reach their potential and challenge gender stereotypes.
