All the forms you need for running your Unit can be found on the Girlguiding Website.  Here you will also find guidance on the completion of Health Care Plans which apply to unit meetings as well as overseas trips.

A reminder of the need to protect the personal information which you hold on other parties as part of your Guiding role.  This is particularly important at the moment when other members of your household might be around when you are accessing that information.


As a result of concerns raised by both parents and Leaders surrounding the use of mobile phones during Unit meetings and Guiding activities such as residential visits, we have produced some guidelines which we hope will help Leaders make decisions when faced with having to balance the benefits of girls having mobile phones to hand, with the need to safeguard our members.

If you have an idea for a training, activity day, resource, publication, challenge, event, or another form of initiative, you can now give us all the information we need on an easy to complete form and your idea can then be considered by the Guiding Delivery Committee.


Young people aged 16 - 18 no longer require recruitment checks even when attending residential events. However, current legislation means it is essential that they are supervised at all times irrespective of whether it is a local meeting or a residential event. Recruitment checks must be carried out if a young person turns 18 prior to attending a residential event.

Including all Leaflet

Girlguiding is committed to being an inclusive organisation that is accessible to all girls and young women - no matter what their identity, background, or additional needs. 

The County/Island Inclusion Advisers have produced a leaflet offering help and advice for Leaders, enabling them to create a safe environment where all girls feel an equal sense of belonging and can receive tailored support to reach their maximum potential. The leaflet contains information on how to make contact with your Inclusion Adviser and where you can find further information on any issues affecting your unit. Click here to download.
