Girlguiding Shropshire

Girlguiding Shropshire is the largest youth organisation in Shropshire, and through a challenging girl-led programme, facilitated by trained adult volunteers, enables girls and young women to develop emotionally, mentally,physically and spiritually so that they can make a positive contribution to their community and the wider world.
Girlguiding gives girls a voice; is modern and relevant to today's girl; promotes diversity and equality; and offers a safe girl-only space.
We keep subscription fees low, and help is available for those from the most deprived areas of this very rural County, so that no-one is excluded on the grounds of cost, and we welcome members from all faiths and cultures.
Our Activity Centre is available to both members and non-members and is a valuable resource for the local Community, but needs ongoing work to ensure that it continues to meet current standards. Residential experience helps girls develop independence and confidence, and allows them to experience and manage risk in a safe environment. We are currently raising money to convert an outbuilding into a laundry and drying room for the use of groups, so that wet clothes can be dried quickly for rapid reuse.
