Telephone number:

Service description:
Any girl aged ten to 14 can become a Guide. Being a Guide is all about learning new skills, making your own decisions and having fun. Guiding provides a safe environment to explore new possibilities and achieve personal goals while making friends and having adventures. It’s up to each Guide to work out which opportunities are relevant for her, whether it’s improving her football skills, party planning or learning about independent living.

Guides work together in Patrols and elect their own Patrol Leader, providing a ready-made group of friends which helps the girls to feel that they belong to something special. They are encouraged to plan their own activities. Each Guide chooses the top she wants to wear from the options available in the Guide wear collection. This choice allows Guides to be themselves but also makes them feel part of the Unit.
