Girlguiding Scotland gives girls and young women adventure, fantastic experiences and fun – all within a supportive girl-only environment. There’s something for all ages, from outdoor activities like kayaking to the chance to travel round the world.
We want every girl to experience what Girlguiding has to offer, and all our leaders are trained, supported and assessed to make sure young members stay safe and have a great time.
You’ll find us in many communities in Scotland from the cities to the Highlands and Islands. Helping to give girls a head start in life and encouraging them to be happy, self-confident and curious about the world they live in and the difference they make is at the heart of everything we do. We’ve got around 3,500 units all over Scotland – take a look at what exciting things they’ve been up to by looking at guiding in your area.
We’re here for all girls so you’re welcome, whoever you are and wherever you’re from! Girlguiding is for every girl and young woman who wants to have adventures, learn, laugh and make friends for life.
As a member of Girlguiding Scotland, your daughter could do something amazing – from conquering her fears on the climbing wall to learning how she can save the planet. It’s a winning combination which she won’t find anywhere else. Discover what your daughter could get out of Girlguiding, and how she can take part.
As a parent or guardian you may be interested in supporting your child by joining in the fun and helping out at your local unit. There are lots of different ways you can do this. Whether it’s a one-off visit to teach the girls how to bake the perfect cupcake or a regular slot as a unit helper, the time you give will really improve the lives of girls in your area. Find out how you can give your time.
If you’re near Edinburgh you can pop into Girlguiding Scotland’s shops to purchase your uniform or head over to our online shop. Every girl who visits one of our shops to get their uniform will get an ‘I visited the Guide shop’ badge!
