Region Strategy 2016-2021

Region Strategy

As a Region we are continually evolving to ensure that we stay relevant to our members and support them in their volunteering. Our facts and figures speak for themselves. We have over 55,000 members and, on average, our volunteers give 151,555 hours a week to provide fun and exciting opportunities for the girls and young women across our region. Our 5 Year Strategy document gives an overview of our aims and objectives.

This booklet summarises Girlguiding North West England's plan for the next five years from 2016 through to 2021. It has been put together by our lead volunteers and advisers and has been aligned with the national Girlguiding “Being our Best” plan. Throughout this booklet, you will see our key aims which we endeavour to deliver under the strands of Excellence, Access, Voice and Capacity.

Youth Participation Strategy 

Girls and young women can achieve amazing things and we know that their ideas, voices and actions can transform the world around them for the better. Our lead volunteers and our Youth Forum; Express! have developed this strategy for the next five years to both show our commitment to youth participation and to support us with this work. The strategy has been aligned with the national Girlguiding “Being our Best” plan, as well as our region strategy.

We believe that youth participation is key at all levels in guiding and we are committed to engaging with members from each of the four different sections; Rainbows (aged 5 – 7), Brownies (aged 7 – 10), Guides (aged 10 – 14) and Rangers (aged 14 – 25). We are very much looking forward to working in partnership with our young members over the next five years, to put our plan into action.
