Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK.
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. We give them a space to have fun.
We run, slide, climb, row, walk, paddle, skip and whizz our way through challenging activities. We laugh all the way and encourage each other to keep on going, ignore the mud on our faces, and never mind which one of us capsizes the canoe or stumbles on the slack line.
Guiding allows girls to further their knowledge, understanding and skills; build their confidence, aspirations, and sense of achievement; try out activities and experiences not included in the curriculum.
Girlguiding Worthing Highdown Division has units in Goring, Ferring, Durrington and Northbrook areas. Our volunteers continue to provide the Guiding programme by holding virtual unit meetings and helping members complete, Interest Badges, Skills builder Badges and Theme awards whilst at home.
All Girlguiding units are staffed by trained volunteers and are given training, on everything from First Aid to leadership skills, and volunteering opportunities range from running a local group to helping with accounting or other administrative tasks.
New volunteers are always welcome, we offer support and training as well as lifelong friendships.
