Girlguiding South West England


The Girlguiding Hero Award enables members to show their appreciation for fellow members or non-members of Girlguiding who have done something wonderful, or gone above and beyond what would be expected of them, and which has in some way helped others.  Any member can make a nomination, and the recipient can be any age.

Click here to go to the Girlguiding Website where you will find full information and a nomination form.  When you have completed the form, send this to your County/Island Commissioner for them to sign and forward to the Region Office - e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.

Silver Oak Leaf Award

Do you know someone in your District, Division or County/Island who is special and who you feel deserves recognition for what they do for Guiding? Have you thought about nominating them for a Guiding Award?


Contact the Region Office for a copy of our leaflet which explains how to nominate a Girlguiding volunteer for a National Honour in recognition of their achievements and for their services to Guiding. Many of those who receive Region and National Guiding Awards would be worthy recipients of a National Honour and you probably know of others who also deserve to be recognised. Take that first step by reading the leaflet and finding out more.

1yr and 3yr Service Awards

The Region's 1yr and 3yr Service Award badges are sent out automatically to our Members in recognition of the time they have given to Girlguiding in the Region.


The Region's 'You're a star!' badge was launched at the 2019 Commissioners' Conference at Exeter.  It can be given by a Region member to anyone!  So if you are a Leader and want to say thank you to a team of parents for their help with an event, or if you are a Commissioner and want to recognise the commitment of your Leaders, this is the perfect way to make those fabulous people feel valued and appreciated. 

The badges are available to purchase from the Region's online shop at £1.00 each plus postage and packing - click here.
