What you can expect from our email newsletters

Our newsletters are a quick and easy way to keep up to date with everything happening in Girlguiding. You can read them on mobile phones, tablets and desktops, on the move, or relaxing at home.

Making guiding happen

Why am I getting this email?

All adult members get this email, regardless of their volunteering role. When you sign up to be a member of Girlguiding you’ve agreed to terms and conditions of your membership. This includes a legal right of ‘legitimate interest’ for us to contact you with ‘essential information’ about your membership and your role in Girlguiding.

When will I get them?

Usually the first Wednesday of each month. If there’s something urgent or important to tell you that can’t wait, we might email you outside of this email, but this shouldn’t be too often.

What’s in it

Things that you need to know to be able to deliver good and safe guiding, including:

  • Policies and procedures
  • Essential training, like A Safe Space and data protection
  • Changes to national programme
  • Subscriptions information
  • Membership systems changes
  • Changes to senior volunteers

Discover, grow

Why am I getting this email?

If you opted in to hear about activities, events and opportunities open to you as part of guiding, our fundraising, campaigns and research, and products and services you can buy, then you’ll continue to get ‘Discover, grow’. It's packed full of fantastic information about all the things going on in guiding. You'll also find lots of inspiration for delivering great guiding and fantastic opportunities we offer for both volunteers and girls.

When will I get them?

Second and fourth Wednesday of each month
