The Queen's Trust helped us open a Rainbows unit

Support from The Queen's Trust means that a much-needed 1st Woodside Rainbows unit has opened - local Leaders tell us more

There's not enough in the local area for young people to do, and without structured activities like these girls may not reach their potential. - Sharon, Leader

The 1st Woodside Rainbows opened in 2015 with support from The Queen's Trust. The funding helped buy much needed equipment and uniform for the new unit as well as supporting a number of recruitment events.

Building girls' confidence 

The group has provided an opportunity for girls to learn to work together as a team and to make decisions for themselves. It's really helped build their confidence as well as giving a new Duke of Edinburgh's Award volunteer an opportunity to learn skills and gain experience of working with children.

What the Leadership Team says

Sharon, the Unit Leader says: 'There's not enough in the local area for young people to do and without structured activities like these girls may not reach their potential.'

Sue, Leader in Training adds: 'I enjoy giving something back to the local community and helping the girls learn values.'
