Welcome to our new website from our lead volunteer, Sue Walker

Girlguiding Scotland constantly changes to keep up with girls’ interests and an evolving world. And communications is something that has changed beyond recognition since Scottish guiding started.

Up to the 1930s Guides could work towards their Telegraphist badge – after they had learnt how to build their own wireless receiver and send a message in Morse code! By 1980, Guides could work towards their Computer badge – albeit on a big clunky BBC Micro! Today, girls can work on their Communicator badge, with a range of challenges based around social media, websites, blogs and more.

Girlguiding Scotland’s communications approach is changing with the times too. It’s part of making sure we’re able to share all the amazing stories in Scottish guiding and the way the brilliant work our volunteers do truly changes lives.

This new website is part of that work. We really hope you enjoy looking around – from checking out our members’ amazing stories to finding out how to conduct your own science experiments!

This website is for you – whether you are a member, a volunteer, a parent or just browsing. Your feedback on the site is really important to us – please get in touch with your thoughts on web@girlguiding-scot.org.uk.

Thank you for everything you do to make the adventure of a lifetime for girls and adults alike.
