Moving to a new area

Make sure your daughter stays part of Girlguiding by transferring her to another unit in the UK or abroad

Moving to a new area can be a big change.

Staying involved in Girlguiding in their new area is a great way for girls to settle in, make new friends and continue their guiding adventure.

Moving within the UK

  • Find a new unit for your daughter using GO. Instructions on how to do this are in the 'How do I transfer my child to another unit' section of our GO guide for parents and carers. Or call our free telephone number: 0800 1 69 59 01 (weekdays 9am-5pm).
  • Ask your current unit leader to provide you with your child's registration number.
  • When you move to the new unit, pass this number to the new leader who will reactivate your child's record.
  • This way your child's record and guiding history is saved - so you won't need to fill out any more forms.

Remember that units in your new area may have waiting lists to join, so ask about a transfer place as soon as you know you are moving.

Moving abroad

British Girlguiding Overseas (BGO) has more information about moving units abroad. If you can't find the country you are moving to on their site then contact BGO by email on [email protected].
