Welcome to Girlguiding in Taunton Division

What is Girlguiding?

Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK. We build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good. We give them a space to have fun.

We are for all girls
We are for all girls and young women, whatever their background and circumstances. We offer them fun, exciting activities and the chance to make lifelong friends. You’ll find us in many communities, helping to give girls a head start in life and encouraging them to be happy,
self-confident and curious about the world they live in and the difference they can make.

We give girls their own space
We give girls a place where they can really be themselves with other girls and share the experience of growing up as a girl in today’s world. We provide a safe, nonjudgemental
environment where girls can explore the issues they care about while having lots of fun, enjoying
new experiences and learning vital skills.

We give girls a voice
We give girls the confidence, skills and information to make informed decisions. We offer a supportive, inclusive and exciting environment where they can reach their own conclusions about the world. We show them how they can speak out and take positive action to improve their lives
and the lives of others.

We change as the lives of girls change
We are relevant to today’s girls because we listen to them and constantly evolve and adapt what we offer them without losing what makes us uniquely us. We provide support, comfort and friendship in what can often seem a complex world for girls as they grow up.
