Guides have an exciting and varied programme designed to inspire and challenge girls from 10-14
What you do in Guides is up to you, from taking part in lots of exciting activities at regular meetings to special events and trips away.
You will choose from different badges and awards which will help you learn new skills and try new challenges. You can do some of this on your own and others you’ll do in groups in your regular unit meetings.
Guides build brilliant friendships
Girls at Guides won't be your average friends. They'll be the girls who want to go on adventures with you, who encourage you to try new things and who celebrate when you've pushed yourself to achieve something special.
As you progress through Guides you'll have a chance to lead small groups and support younger girls to have fun and make friends. You could even get involved in our leadership opportunities
Guides get to have their say
You and the girls in your group will decide together what to do in your meetings, choosing from the wide range of badges, skills and activities covered by our six programme themes. So whether you want to try a new sport, have a go at performing, run a debate or brush up on your first aid skills - you can.
If there's an issue you really care about, Guides is a chance to make a difference. You'll be encouraged to speak out about what matters to you and to do something about it.
Your Guide programme, awards and badges
You’ll never be stuck for something to do in Guides. Whether you want to dedicate your time to exploring the outdoors, really focus on your hobbies, or challenge yourself with something new, you’ll find something at Guides that suits you.
You can work towards interest badges – about photography, geocaching, human rights and more, develop life skills with skills builders and work hard to earn unique awards like the Commonwealth award, the Guide Gold award and the six Theme awards, which will really help you at school and later in life.
When you're 14 you can move on to Rangers or The Senior Section, which offer even more adventure, travel and leadership opportunities. Find out what Rangers (aged 14-18) and The Senior Section (aged 14 to 25) get up to.
The Guides meet on a Tuesday evening at 7.30pm
