Girlguiding Scotland

Charity registered in Scotland SC005548

Girlguiding Scotland is Scotland’s leading charity for girls and young women. Every year we empower 50,000 girls to be their best and face the challenges of growing up today. We’ve been doing this through adventure, friendship and fun for over 100 years. We inspire girls. We give them space to grow, and strive to ensure that each one of them can get involved – no matter what their background or ability.

We have more than 12,000 amazing volunteers who, along with our fantastic supporters, make that happen. We’re dedicated to creating a better world for girls and young women. What we do makes a positive difference to the lives of all girls and young women across Scotland – not just our members.
