Our mission

Whoever they are, wherever they're from, girls can do anything

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.  

More than 300,000 girls meet as Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers. We fire their imaginations through challenges and adventures for all personalities and abilities, from 4 to 18 years old.

Guiding is so much more than an after school club. Here's why we're special.  

We give girls a space just for them

Girls face pressures and expectations in every area of their lives. They’re limited by gender stereotypes and face barriers to accessing things they need to feel happy. They tell us they don’t feel safe in their daily lives.  

In our relaxed and encouraging all-girl spaces, every girl can be herself and feel at home. No pressure, no judgement – just fun and learning with other girls, guided by our inspiring volunteers.

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 them and get support from other girls.

Girls speak, then we listen and act 

We’ve been by girls’ sides for over 100 years. Today, we’re squarely focused on what drives, challenges and excites girls here and now. We listen to what girls tell us, and this guides what we offer and what we fight for. 

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 a chance to tell the world about the issues they face and the change they want to see. Then we plan campaigns with advocates, our youth panel, and 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. 

At their regular meetings, girls take part in loads of activities related to things that matter to them. 

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. 

We invite all members 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 LGBTQ+ 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 volunteers give their time so that girls get their voices heard and do great activities. They're inspirational role models for girls too. 

In return we provide them with training opportunities so they can grow their skills in guiding and beyond. 

Come and join the fun!

Register your child, fundraise or volunteer - when you get involved, you're empowering girls to know they can do anything.
