What is Girlguiding?
Originally started in 1912 by the girls themselves, Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK. We are active in every part of the UK, giving girls and young women a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities. We build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good.
