Our sections

We show girls from 4 to 18 a world of possibilities big and small. One where every girl can laugh and learn and be herself. Girlguiding is what each girl wants it to be. It might be the thrill of doing something for the first time. Songs around a campfire. The buzz of getting a new badge. Coming home exhausted and full of stories. It’s a space where she can be herself, get creative, explore, and most of all have fun.

Anyone can join Girlguiding at any age over 4, so please don’t think you can’t join just because you didn’t start at the beginning – we’re ready to welcome you!

Rainbows (4-7 Years)

Rainbows is about coming together to play, learn and have tons of fun in a colourful, safe space.

Rangers (14-18 Years)

Rangers is your space – where you get together with other girls to have fun, learn more, give back, hang out, and just be you.


We empower girls through fun, adventurous, and inspiring activities to help them realise their potential, discover the best in themselves, and to make a positive difference to their community. Build friendships and make a difference.

Brownies (7-10 Years)

Brownies is about non-stop fun, learning and adventure.

Inspire (18-30 Years)

Launched in 2020, our Girlguiding Inspire community offers a range of opportunities for fun, networking, personal challenge and development. You make new friends in a relaxed and supportive environment.


No contribution is too small. Many units look to occasional helpers for support when team members are on holiday or unwell or for special events, trips and holidays. Let us know how much time you can spare and we’ll fit the role around you!

Guides (10-14 Years)

Guides is a relaxed, welcoming space where you can have fun, learn and be yourself.
