Joining for girls

We are for all girls and young women, whatever their background and circumstances.

We offer them fun, exciting activities and the chance to make lifelong friends. You’ll find us in many communities, helping to give girls a head start in life and encouraging them to be happy, self-confident and curious about the world they live in and the difference they make.


Register your daughter

You can register your daughter’s interest by visiting the Girlguiding website and following the key stages of the online registration process.

You’ll be asked to provide your contact details and key pieces of information about your daughter, so we can suggest several units in your area. You can then select which unit is most convenient.

You will then be contacted by someone from your chosen unit, usually within 21 days, to tell you all about meetings, what’s planned for the term, the costs involved and whether there’s a waiting list for a space.

If the unit has spaces available, you can pop along and visit the unit for a trial meeting, so you can both get a better idea of what guiding’s all about. But we’re sure you’ll have a great time!


Flexible guiding

Can’t get to regular unit meetings because of other commitments, disability, transport difficulties or living somewhere remote? Find out more about being a part of Scottish guiding through the Lones scheme.
