" Guiding has equipped me with the skills to develop both personally and professionally "
The Girlguiding movement is divided into sections each addressing the needs of a specific age group of girls and young women.
The following information comes from the Girlguiding UK National website (http://www.girlguiding.org.uk/) by clicking on the heading of each section you will be taken to more information available on that site.
Rainbows have fun! They take part in games and activities as part of their programme. Everything a Rainbow does helps her to develop and to think for herself, in a safe girl-only environment. Any girl aged five to seven can be a Rainbow.
Brownies are usually aged between seven and 10. Brownies have fun! They take part in indoor and outdoor activities that challenge them to do their best.
Guides are usually aged between ten and 14. Being a Guide is all about learning new skills, making new friends and helping others.
