Opportunities for parents

There are lots of simple ways you can support Girlguiding and help girls to have fun and reach their potential

You can make a difference

As a parent you have a unique insight into what girls need to grow and thrive - both now and in the future. And you have all sorts of skills to contribute - from your experiences as a parent, at work, or from any hobbies or interests you have.

Volunteer with us

There are so many ways you can get involved as a volunteer. Whether you want to help out once a week, once a year or by sharing a skill, you can have a huge impact.

  • Help out on a parent rota - by offering a helping hand at a few meetings per year, you can support your daughters' Leaders and experience the fun of guiding.
  • Help with administration - you could get involved with anything from planning events and camps to managing finances and helping with fundraising.
  • Share a specific skill - whatever you're great at - from football coaching to yoga teaching, graphic design to engineering - you could run sessions with local groups and help inspire girls to try something new.
  • Become an occasional helper - you'll assist in running groups on an ad-hoc basis. You will be supported by other volunteers to assist in delivering activities, trips and adventures for girls.
  • Become a Leader - if you'd like to support a group more regularly there are lots of opportunities to get involved. Working alongside other volunteers, you'll be supported with learning and development opportunities and will make a huge difference in your local community.

To find out more, talk to your daughter's Leader or register online.
