Welcome to Girlguiding Inspire Anglia

 

It’s time to inspire Anglia.

It’s taken a while to get here, but finally the 18-30 community has a name – and boy was it worth the wait! Flexible guiding for 18-30s will now be known as Girlguiding Inspire.

To make sure the name was a perfect fit, the team at HQ and your cohort of country and region coordinators have been working hard to support rounds of testing and consultation. We won’t pretend it’s gone without any hiccups (perhaps some of the early name suggestions are best forgotten…), but Girlguiding Inspire was by far the most popular choice amongst both members and non-members, and came as a suggestion from within the movement. It embodies everything we aspire to be as young women in guiding – role models, change-makers, and forces for good.

 

But how can Inspire members get involved? That’s where the pathways come in.

You don’t have to be a leader to make a contribution to the movement. Girlguiding Inspire is all about encouraging and supporting members to play to their strengths and share their passions with those around them. Whether it’s running a rock climbing adventure for Guides, supporting an event, taking on a supporting role like a unit treasurer or representing the region on a sign-up-and-go trip abroad, we’re here to help inspire members to inspire others.

So far we’ve seen local Inspire groups run Taskmaster evenings, create content for Anglia’s online video resource library, and sign up as service crew for the rescheduled Rangers Festival. We’d love to hear more about what our Inspire members are up to, so use the hashtag #GGInspire to share your activities. We’re working on putting together some exciting new opportunities just for Inspire members in Anglia, so watch this space for more. In the meantime, join in on Facebook to keep up to date with events and opportunities, and reach out to your county champion to hear what’s happening in your area

If you have any questions, your Coordinators, Georgina and Ellen, are here to help – just drop us an email and we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction.
