The Starting a New Unit Grant provides up to £500 to help with the costs of setting up a new unit during its first three months.
It can be used towards a variety of costs including Promise badges, your first month’s rent, resources, first aid materials and set-up equipment such as craft materials or stationery. Re-opened units can apply if they were closed for 12 months of more.
To apply, please download and fill out the application form using the guidance included in the document.
Please make sure your commissioner signs it too and remember to post it to Girlguiding Scotland, rather than Girlguiding, as we process these grants in Scotland.
Anyone needing help completing the form should get in touch our Membership Development Team or call 0131 226 4511.
If you are opening a Guide or Ranger unit, please enquire about CashBack Start Up funding before applying for this funding.
