Help and advice for running virtual unit meetings

For those of you looking to keep guiding going during the lockdown, here’s some practical advice to help you organise and run virtual meetings for your unit. Our advice complements the online guiding support you can find over on Girlguiding’s website.

The following support covers these three topics:

  1. Creating a Safe Space when using online platforms for meetings
  2. Adapting materials and preparing for a virtual meeting
  3. Running a virtual meeting

We recommend that you read all three sections, but in the order that best suits you.

Online trainings for volunteers

We’ve also been running a lot of Zoom Training sessions online for volunteers keen to find out more about holding virtual meetings (beginner and intermediate level). After the last intermediate session takes place on 3 June from 7.30-8.30pm there won’t be any more Zoom trainings on offer for the time-being. However, we’re hoping to run more in July so keep checking our ‘What’s on‘ section for further updates nearer that time.
