Our mission

Whoever they are, wherever they're from, girls and young women can do amazing things - we give them the chance

Through fun, friendship, challenge and adventure we empower girls to find their voice, inspiring them to discover the best in themselves and to make a positive difference in their community.

We want all girls across the UK to have the space and opportunities they need to thrive, grow and give back to their communities

More than 240,000 girls already meet regularly as Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers. Together they learn skills, grow in confidence, make lifelong friendships, help their communities and have lots of fun. 

Guiding is so much more than an after school activity or a way for girls to spend an evening. Here's why we are special.

We give girls a space just for them

We're girls only. That means girls feel free to be themselves.

We won't tell them an activity is 'for boys'. Our girls get to score tries at rugby, go bouldering or simply play the games that they enjoy most.

We give girls somewhere they can talk openly about what affects their daily lives and get support from other girls like them. When girls told us they wanted to talk about their mental wellbeing, we created Think Resilient to help our young members lead those discussions.

Girls speak, then we listen and act

All girls in Girlguiding get the chance to choose what they do - from Rainbows picking activities, to Rangers sitting on our Council

Every year, our Girls' Attitudes Survey gives girls and young women a chance to tell the world about the issues affecting them and what change they want to see. Then we plan campaigns with Advocate, our youth panel, and support girls to make that change happen.

Girls don't stand still, so neither do we

Throughout our history, Girlguiding has evolved as the needs of girls have changed.

We run giant music events just for our members like the BIG GIG and our girl-only festival Wellies and Wristbands.

At their regular meetings, girls take part in activities related to things that matter to them such as our Free Being Me body confidence badge.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from – all girls are welcome

At Girlguiding, we give all girls an equal sense of belonging.

Girls with additional needs are always included in guiding. We offer grants to ensure that they, and their carers, can join in on camps and trips.

All members are invited to make their Promise to 'be true to themselves and develop their own beliefs'. We welcome girls from every faith – and no faith.

We support our volunteers to make guiding a safe space for LGBT members too. And we have a great time attending Pride events all over the UK.

We want to welcome more girls so we're reaching out to new communities throughout the UK.

An inspirational network of volunteers

Our Leaders and adult volunteers give their time so that girls get their voices heard, do great activities and feel included and special. They are inspirational role models for girls too.

In return we provide them with training opportunities so that they have the skills to offer girls the best possible guiding experience.

Come and join the fun!

Whether it be through registering your daughter, fundraising, donating or volunteering - when you get involved you'll know your empowering girls to be themselves and to grow in confidence so that they can be the women they want to be.
