Register a child
Register a child to join and we’ll put you in touch with your local Girlguiding unit
Whether your child wants to join Rainbows (4-7), Brownies (7-10), Guides (10-14) or Rangers (14-18), start their Girlguiding journey here.
To join over 300,000 girls across the UK, begin by registering interest and finding out about units (local Girlguiding groups) in your area.
There are so many reasons to join Girlguiding! We offer a safe, girl-only space in which your child can build confidence, learn new skills and discover who they want to be. We’ve got an action-packed programme with something for every girl, and we work to be truly girl-led in everything we do.
How registration works
- Register your interest – we'll ask for your contact details and a few key pieces of information about your child.
- Choose the best unit for you – we'll use your details to suggest several local units. Then it's up to you to choose the most convenient one. You can select up to 3 choices.
- We'll get in touch – someone from your chosen unit will contact you. They'll aim to get back to you within 3 weeks. They can explain to you about meetings times, costs, what's planned for the term and if there's a waiting list.
- Try guiding out – if spaces are available, the unit will arrange a trial meeting for your child to attend. This gives you both an idea of what guiding is all about – we're sure you'll love it!
How much does Girlguiding cost?
The cost of our membership fees (‘subs’) will vary from area to area. This is dependent on everything from the unit’s activities to the cost of hiring a meeting place. Register your details, find your local unit and speak to your local volunteer team about costs in your area.
Where can I buy uniform and what does my child need?
Our online shop has everything and more for your uniform needs. Each of our age groups has its own uniform, but uniform should never be a barrier to girls joining guiding. Check out our policy on inclusive uniform.
I haven’t heard from my local unit. What do I do?
Your local volunteer team will aim to get in touch within 3 weeks of registering interest. Our volunteers are very busy and they give us a lot of their time, so this may sometimes take a little longer.
How do I add another child or register multiple children?
Once you’ve registered one child via the register now button above, you can add another child from within your GO account using our GO guide for parents and carers.
I’ve already registered and would like to change my details. Where can I do that?
If you've already completed the registration form, you can log in to check your progress, contact a unit or change any details including your preferred unit. Find out more about checking or changing your registration enquiry.
How do I move my child to another unit?
Go to 'How do I transfer my child to another unit?' on our GO guide for parents and carers.
