Since 1909, the Girl Guides have been hard at work all across the UK helping girls and young women reach their potential no matter what their ability or background.
At a vital time in girls' personal and social development, the Guides provide a safe,
inclusive space where they can be comfortable just being themselves. With the
support of amazing volunteers, girls in guiding form close friendships, grow
in self-confidence, learn new skills, gain new experiences - and have fun!
But there's more to guiding than having a good time. Guiding is a game with a purpose. It provides opportunities for girls and young women to:
* Be challenged by new experiences and achieve a sense of pride in accomplishment.
* Think for themselves and make decisions.
* Undertake teamwork and acquire leadership skills.
* Acquire self-awareness, self-respect and self-confidence.
* Develop personal values which give their lives meaning and direction.
* Do their best according to their abilities.
* Seek spiritual development - whatever faith they belong to.
* Contribute to society.
* Live by a simple code - the Guide Law.
