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. Guides challenge themselves and make a difference in their community but 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 any girl aged ten to 14 who wishes to, can become a Guide. They elect their own Patrol Leader and are encouraged to plan their own activities from a wide range of badges, skills and activities covered by our six programme themes.  Patrols provide a ready-made group of friends and helps the girls to feel that they belong to something special.

Guides can 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.
