In 2021, like every year, Girlguiding will ask each member to pay a ‘subscription'. Do you ever wonder how this is broken down?
Your subscription is a fee that supports different levels within Girlguiding and, in 2021, this will be no different. Of your subscription of £24.70, some will go to your district, division and county levels, and may fund training and events, your campsite and buildings and local grants.
£17.70 will go to Girlguiding and will be used for national projects such girl led PR campaigns, core programme, learning and development, GO, recruitment campaigns, charity management, safeguarding, data protection, insurance and fundraising.
£7 will go towards the investment in the future of Girlguiding North West England. This contribution covers key elements ranging from essentials such as insurance and legal protection to our exciting large-scale events, and seasonal merchandise.
Where a member is a member of multiple units - for example a Ranger who is a member of a Ranger unit, but is also a young leader at a Brownie unit - agreement should be made between the leaders of the units in question with regards to who is responsible for paying the subscription for this young member.
