Thanks to the dedication and support of 100,000 amazing volunteers, Girlguiding is 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.
Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK with over half a million members. Girlguiding builds girls' confidence and raises their aspirations, giving them the chance to discover their full potential and encouraging them to be a powerful force for good.
"I joined Girlguiding when I was eight years old and I loved it from the beginning. There was so much to do and I gained many friends. I am now 28 years old and I am a Team Leader. It's had a lifelong impact and has shaped who I am and helped me make many positive choices in life." - Heather Tait, Team Leader, Edinburgh
Funding from players of People's Postcode Lottery will allow Girlguiding to continue its incredible work which is already making a real difference to the lives of over 500,000 girls and young women. Our players' support will help Girlguiding to continue to reach out to more and more young females.
