Girlguiding is the UK's largest voluntary organisation for girls and young women. The aim of Guiding is to help girls and young women to develop emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually so that they can make a positive contribution to their community and the wider world.

Girlguiding today aims to:

Provide a safe, girl only environment.
Be appropriate for girls today.
Uphold diversity and equality.
Encourage our young women and give them a voice.

In Girlguiding Bristol and South Gloucestershire we have over 5,500 young members aged between 5 and 26, and over 1,200 volunteer Qualified Leaders plus another 200 recognised volunteers.

Girls are grouped by age into four sections: Rainbow Guides (age 5-7), Brownie Guides (age 7-10), Guides (age 10-14) and Senior Section (age 14-26).

Our volunteers do amazing things - some of which might surprise you. You could find yourself white water rafting, training guiding Leaders overseas, celebrating LGBT inclusion in a local Pride parade or singing along with 10,000 girls at Wembley Arena.

Volunteering with us isn't just about campfires and helping girls to get their next badge - although those are special moments that we all share. It's about empowering girls and giving them new experiences. It's being a role model and helping girls to realise their full potential. It's sharing and developing your skills.

Do something for you and your community:

Meet new friends living near you.
Take a refreshing break from your everyday routine.
Share a skill or specialism.
Make a difference to the lives of girls in your community.
Spend time laughing, playing and being inspired by incredible girls and young women.

Build skills for life:

Working with young people and other volunteers helps develop valuable, transferable skills like event planning, time management, leadership skills and budgeting.
You choose the volunteer role that matches your skills and time. Then we'll help you build skills with training opportunities suited to your role that make your CV stand out. Take our Leadership Qualification, become a trained first aider or get qualified for outdoor activities such as climbing and kayaking.

Be an inspiration for girls:

Your professional and personal experience, a specific skill or simply your enthusiasm - you have so much to share with girls and young women in guiding. Whether you've been involved in guiding before or you are completely new to us, you'll feel proud to watch girls grow through guiding.
