Volunteering with Girlguiding UK gives our leaders a huge sense of achievement when they think of how much the girls in their units have grown in confidence in the time they’ve known them. Leaders themselves also gain confidence from the training, skills and experiences gained through Guiding.
We have waiting-to-join lists because of the continuing popularity of Rainbows, Brownies & Guides and a shortage of adults coming forward to offer a little of their time in helping to run groups. More adult help would mean that the lists would be shorter and the girls could enjoy all that guiding offers sooner. This is something we all want to see happen
We know that there are many people in our area who already lead very busy lives but who would like to be able to help out in some capacity. We want to make it as easy as possible for them to do just that, individually or with friends; any help will be very much appreciated.
We’ll make sure that they feel welcomed and valued, and of course they won’t be left on their own. They will be supported by others sharing similar experiences, balancing the demands of home, family and work.
