Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK. Thanks to the dedication and support of 100,000 amazing volunteers, we are active in every part of the UK, giving girls and young women a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities. We build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good.
In Girlguiding Cornwall County we offer the following groups:
- Rainbows: 5-7 years
- Brownies: 7-11 years
- Guides: 10-14 years
- Rangers: 14-18 years
- And Trefoil Guild: 18+ years
We also offer flexible opportunities and activities for young women aged 18-30 years old.
Within the charity there are plenty of opportunities for young women and adults to get involved in from helping out with groups, organising events or leading a group of volunteers, these are few of the example roles that you could take on.
