Waiting List Warriors is also the name of our campaign to tackle waiting lists. Whether you have a list of girls missing out or not, here are some other ways you can get involved:

  • Update your unit’s capacity on GO to match the number of girls you can currently offer spaces to (so we understand where we really have spaces)
  • Keep GO up to date throughout the year, so we know how many girls are in each unit (so we can target recruitment campaigns effectively)
  • Look out for opportunities to involve waiting list girls in unit activities
  • Talk to your county membership growth coordinator about support for recruiting more adults to help your unit welcome some of those missing out
  • Let units in your area know that you have a waiting list in case they could offer spaces
  • Give parents the choice to transfer their enquiry to a nearby unit that could offer a space sooner
