Child safety

How do we keep girls safe?

Girlguiding Scotland offers fun, challenge and adventure to our young members. We know that young people thrive in safe surroundings so Girlguiding Scotland takes the safety of girls and young women very seriously and has an excellent reputation for providing a safe environment for members to enjoy both indoor and outdoor activities.

Safety guidelines

We have clear safety guidelines which all our volunteers follow. We also have our own leader qualifications and training.

We carry out checks on all volunteers who work directly with our young members. This includes recruitment checks, two references and an informal discussion with a local commissioner – a member of guiding responsible for the management of adults involved in guiding.
