Policy statement

Girlguiding is a single-sex organisation in accordance with the provisions of the Equality Act 2010. Girlguiding believes that the needs of girls and young women are best met through an organisation catering specifically for girls and led by women.


Our policies

Girlguiding’s policies and related statements provide a structure in which guiding can take place safely, consistently and in accordance with legislation.
