Girlguiding Scotland’s work is overseen by our trustee board, a group of trustees appointed for their skills, expertise and commitment to our vision. Led by the Scottish chief commissioner, our most senior volunteer, Girlguiding Scotland’s trustees make sure everything we do helps us achieve our mission to inspire and empower girls in every community in Scotland. The Scottish Chief Commissioner is supported by the chief executive and her team of staff.
