Volunteer with us

Try new things, develop your skills and be a role model to girls and young women. Whether you can give a little or a lot, you can help us make guiding happen.

For parents

With guiding, your daughter will laugh, learn and have adventures – all at an affordable cost. Our fantastic volunteers will be there to support her right from the start.

Guiding provides opportunities for girls to make new friends, have fun and grow in confidence. Our activities are designed for all girls, so there’s a place for your daughter whatever her tastes or needs.

For volunteers

Our practical resources and tools have been developed to help you make guiding happen. Read on for guidance on delivering our programme, tools for running your unit, tips for recruiting members and opportunities to build your skills.

Girls taking action

We empower girls to learn about the world, form their own viewpoints and speak out for the change they want to see. Find out more about our girl-led campaigns and how you can get involved.
