We want all girls to enjoy guiding. If young members or volunteers need help to enjoy all the opportunities that Girlguiding has to offer, here are the different grants we have available and how to apply.

Rainbows 2

NEW: Cost of living grant

Many Girlguiding members, especially those in more deprived areas, have been hit hard by the cost-of-living crisis. Thanks to funding from Girlguiding UK, we are able to offer a cost of living grant to help subsidise adult volunteers' and young members' guiding costs. This includes subscriptions, rent, travel, activities and uniform.

Access to Guiding Grant

Finances should never be a barrier for a volunteer or young member to take part in Girlguiding. Do you need financial assistance with things such as opening a new unit, attending training, buying uniform or resources, travel, accessibility, supporting people in need or going away in the UK or further afield? If so, our Access to Guiding grant is there to support you.
