Have You Considered Volunteering?
Girlguiding UK welcomes volunteers of all backgrounds, age groups and abilities. Guiding is flexible and volunteering can be arranged to fit around a busy lifestyle. There are a number of different ways you can help out with our unit. Whats your perfect role?

Whatever your skills and interests, and no matter how much or how little time you have to spare, one of our volunteering roles is bound to suit you. And your contribution is sure to be appreciated by the girls.

What's in it for me?
Making a difference to girls' lives and helping them achieve their potential is hugely rewarding. But there are lots of benefits for you too.

A role in Girlguiding UK can certainly give your CV a boost! As a volunteer, you could get involved with marketing, recruiting other volunteers, raising funds, handling budgets and managing large-scale events. In the process, you will develop a whole range of skills such as communication and organisational skills, teamwork and leadership.

If you become a Leader or Assistant Leader, you will take Girlguiding UK's Leadership Qualification, and will be offered lots of other training opportunities at local and national level. Perhaps you've always wanted to become qualified in First Aid or learn about event management. Volunteering with guiding can provide the opportunity.

You'll have lots of fun! The guiding programme is packed with activities and challenges, and you'll have a chance to experience them along with the girls

GGUK on your CV

Guiding has given me a number of opportunities to travel, to make new friends and share experiences with a variety of people from different social and economic backgrounds.  Guiding has provided me with many valuable skills such as leadership, organisation and enabling me to provide a stimulating and challenging programme to girls aged between 10-14 years of all abilities. We encourage them to have fun, whilst challenging themselves with new activities. Empowering them to maximise their potential by thinking for themselves, allowing them to make decisions, to work as a part of a team, acquire self-awareness, respect and confidence to develop personal values in a caring, supportive environment. As a unit it is vitally important that we meet the needs of individual guides whilst allowing them to feel safe and secure as we nurture their dreams. I get a great sense of satisfaction from watching the girls and young women in our unit develop their confidence and skills whilst having lots of fun.'
