Register your interest in joining Girlguiding

Girlguiding is for all girls, whether you want to register your daughter or volunteer to help. Find out how you can get involved.


Already a member?

If your daughter is already a member of a Rainbow, Brownie or Guide unit you do not need to register her interest again.

Moving house?

There are units across the UK. Guiding is a great way to make friends in a new area! You can use Join Us to transfer your daughter to a new unit. You’ll need her Girlguiding membership number, which you can request from her current Leader.

Moving up a section?

Ask one of her Leaders to pass her membership number onto the unit you wish for her to transfer to. A member of the new unit will contact you with more information about the section, meeting time and cost.

Body Confidence and Free Being Me

No girl should feel she can't succeed because of her appearance

Free Being Me is a body confidence programme for Brownies and Guides. Sessions help girls recognise myths about how girls and women 'should' look and be happy in their own skin.

According to our Girls' Attitudes Survey 2014, almost half of 11- to 21-year-olds sometimes feeling ashamed of the way they look. We want to change that.


Spread the word

And it's not just about girls in guiding - to get their Free Being Me badge, they're challenged to take the message to their friends, schools and families, so thousands of girls will get a body-confidence boost.

The programme is delivered by Leaders or trained Peer Educators who each bring different delivery styles to the programme. Girls benefit whoever runs it - Leaders know the girls and their needs, while Peer Educators can bring similar life experiences and are fantastic role models.

10 million strong

Free Being Me was produced by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and the Dove Self-Esteem Project. It's being used in 146 countries around the world - in fact, we're part of a global body confidence revolution!
