Free Being Me

Free Being Me sessions help girls recognise beauty myths, grow in confidence and be happy in their own skin

Imagine a world where no one is worried about the way they look

See how you can make a difference...

No girl should feel she can't succeed because of her appearance 

Free Being Me is a body confidence programme for Brownies and Guides. Sessions help girls recognise myths about how girls and women 'should' look and be happy in their own skin.

Spread the word

And it's not just about girls in guiding - to get their Free Being Me badge, our young members are challenged to take the message to their friends, schools and families, so thousands of girls will get a body confidence boost.

Leaders and peer educators can deliver Free Being Me

The programme is delivered by leaders or trained peer educators who each bring different delivery styles to the programme. There's a benefit for girls whoever runs it - leaders know the girls and their needs, while peer educators can bring similar life experiences and are fantastic role models.

We booked peer educator Laura to come to visit our Guides, her session on body confidence was a big success. The girls had such inspiring and delightful messages to share. - Katie, Guide leader

10 million strong

Free Being Me was produced by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and the Dove Self-Esteem Project. It's being used in 146 countries around the world - in fact, we're part of a global body confidence revolution!
