Being a Rainbow, Brownie or Guide is all about having the space to try new things through a programme of age-appropriate activities, trips and adventures. More information can be found at https://www.girlguidingscotland.org.uk/

The purpose of the role is to give girls opportunities for fun, friendship, challenge and adventure. As a unit helper you will support leaders to deliver Girlguiding programme activities with the girls during their meetings. Some tasks include:
