About us

Girlguiding North West England provides girls with opportunities to explore, have fun and know that they belong. We help all girls know that they can do anything.

Through fun, friendship, challenge, and adventure we empower girls to find their voice, inspiring them to discover the best in themselves and to make a positive difference in their community.

Girlguiding North West

Our charity

Founded in 1971, Girlguiding North West England works hard to ensure all girls and volunteers have the opportunity to learn, explore and make friends. We are dedicated to removing any barriers to those wanting to join and rely on volunteers to create these opportunities for our young members.

We are constantly evolving to meet the needs of girls and we work with them to tackle issues that matter to them the most.  We give girls the opportunity to make a difference, speak out and do things that they will remember forever.

We empower girls to become leaders themselves and make their voices heard on the issues that affect them. Plus, our international projects take girls all over the world

Waddow Statement

Following Girlguiding’s announcement on 18 May 2023 about the Activity Centres, we feel it’s important to communicate with our members about this decision and in particular Waddow Hall.

Girlguiding Trefoil

Our Mission

We want to provide unrivalled, fun, accessible and empowering experiences that appeal to more young people. Everything that we do will be inspired by and co-created with young members and be informed by their needs.

We want all volunteers to enjoy their time with us. We will create rewarding and flexible volunteering opportunities and make it easier for volunteers to contribute their time and talents to deliver great guiding to members.

We are committed to being an inclusive and impactful organisation and to welcoming and benefiting from a wide variety of people.

We want to be a sustainable and efficient organisation, delivering great outcomes for our members, and creating an effective organisation capable of achieving its business strategy.
