Thanks to generous funding from the Gannochy Trust, we’re able to launch a new strand of Developing Guiding Funding.
This funding aims to enable units, districts, divisions and counties to deliver activities which will promote skills development and leadership for girls, help them become active citizens and/or support and encourage them to progress to the next section. This strand of funding will also support training for adults where there are clear, direct benefits for girls.
Activities supported by the fund can be delivered in a variety of ways including through online or remote guiding sessions or outdoor meetings (in line with Girlguiding and Scottish Government policies).
Up to £500 will be available per project although there is no minimum level of award. Applicants should be confident that they will be able to spend any grant they are awarded within the next 6 months.
Guide and Ranger units should check whether they are eligible for Cashback funding before applying. If you’re unsure what funding is best to apply for have a look at this flowchart to help you figure out the next step and who to go to for support.
