Support for additional needs

We make sure that girls of all abilities have the chance to take part in girlguiding

Girls can do anything. We are for all girls that’s why we offer support and opportunities to girls of all ages, of all abilities and from all backgrounds and communities.

Girlguiding is about actively involving everyone, including those with additional needs. All of our activities are flexible enough to allow every member to take part and we provide any extra support that’s needed to make that possible.

How we support girls with additional needs

  • Our fund for members with disabilities – ask your unit leader about our grants to help provide specialist equipment or support for disabled members on camps and other trips.
  • A network of specialist advisers at the local level who provide support and information for leaders in their area.
  • Guidance for leaders on adapting games and activities for young members of all abilities.

How we support adults with additional needs

We are also dedicated to supporting adult members with additional needs so they can get as much out of volunteering for us as possible.

For more information about the support offered to girls and volunteers in your local area, please contact us through the website and we’ll pass your enquiry to the local commissioner.
