Action for Change

Be the change you want to see

Date: Friday 8 - Sunday 10 September 

Action for Change is Girlguiding’s project to create the UK’s largest girl-led advocacy network. In September, girls from across the North West Region will come together at a fantastic inspiration weekend to learn all about campaigning, public speaking, project management and more – before joining their local network to design their own social action projects and campaigns.

If you’re passionate about social change, this is your chance to get involved in something amazing.
