Adult retention and recognition

While our focus is the girls, Girlguiding Scotland also provides life-changing experiences for adults too!

Recognising their contribution

As members of a world-wide movement, all our volunteers have access to a wide range of opportunities ranging from international travel to training and skills development as well as guaranteed fun and friendship.

In return, they give their time to help deliver amazing experiences to an incredible 45,000 girls and young women across Scotland. Whether they give a little or lot of time and whether they are in unit-based roles or volunteering behind the scenes each and every one deserves to be recognised. Girlguiding and Girlguiding Scotland Awards are one way to recognise member contributions but there are lots of other ways too – check out some of the inspirational ideas below.

All volunteers should feel enthusiastic, valued and supported in their roles. That’s why we need to make sure we’re promoting all the opportunities that come with being an adult while also embedding a culture of thanks and recognition at every level of guiding. Making sure that that there’s flexibility is also key to retaining members as volunteering needs to fit around the unexpected challenges that life can throw up.
