Who Are Girlguiding Shropshire?


Girlguiding is the UK’s largest voluntary organisation for girls and young women.

Girlguiding Shropshire is set within Girlguiding Midlands Region and is an integral part of the national Girlguiding organisation.

Girlguiding Shropshire enables more than 2,400 girls and young women to develop their potential and to make a difference, through a self planned programme of activities and challenges, guided by more than 500 trained adult volunteers.

The aim of Guiding is to help girls and young women develop emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually so that they can make a positive contribution to their community and the wider world.

Girls can join us at 5 in the Rainbow section (5 – 7 years) and we also have groups for older girls, Brownies (7 – 10 years), Guides (10 – 14 ) and Rangers (14 – 18 years). We also have a number of roles for adult volunteers.

You may be good with figures and could help a unit with their accounts, or have a key skill you would be willing to share with a unit. Not all our volunteers run a unit every week. If you want to know more about any aspect of Girlguiding Shropshire, please use the ‘Contact Us’ tab at the top of the page.

If you have decided you or someone you have parental responsibility for would like to join us and find an appropriate unit near you, use the ‘Join Us’ link.
