If you’re a parent or guardian keen to join in the fun and help out at your local unit there are lots of ways to do this. Whether it’s a one-off visit to teach the girls how to bake the perfect cupcake or a regular slot as a unit helper, the time you give will really improve the lives of girls in your area.
Unit helpers and occasional helpers
We know it can be hard to fit volunteering around a busy life – so if you don’t want to commit to becoming a leader but would like to help out, the role of a unit helper is perfect.
Unit helpers can be either male or female, aged 18-65, and occasional helpers can be any age. Helpers can choose to wear section wear if they want, and can be flexible with the numbers of hours they commit – it’s completely up to you!
There’s plenty you can do to support Girlguiding even if you don’t have time to give regularly. After all, every hour counts.
There are plenty of important jobs that can be done in your own time and from your own home, from helping with unit accounts or lending a hand with fundraising to taking part in a one-off session to teach girls new skills.
