Volunteers


Inspire others and make it happen

As a volunteer for Girlguiding you get the opportunity to do something really special


Meet new friends.
Take a refreshing break from your everyday routine.
Share a skill or specialism.
Make a difference to the lives of girls in your community.
Spend time laughing, playing and being inspired by incredible girls and young women.

Volunteering with us isn't just about campfires and helping girls to get their next badge - although those are special moments. It's about empowering girls and giving them new experiences. It's helping girls realise their own potential, sharing and developing your skills, all while having the time of your life.

You choose the volunteer role that matches your skills and time available. You can be a leader, a helper, a treasurer, fundraiser, administrator, trainer, the list goes on and on........
We have a role that will suit you.

Girlguiding Anglia region photo-shoot 2018!


Back in October we held our very own regional photo-shoot at Hautbois Activity Centre. We called for all budding models or those interested in being a part of Girlguiding Anglia’s brand-new website and had a brilliant response from Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Rangers and Leaders.
