“Our amazing Girlguiding Somerset volunteers inspire the girls and young women in their units to discover the best in themselves and empower them to make a positive difference in their communities. It’s my huge privilege and pleasure to support them in everything they do.”

We have a great organisation where girls and leaders can try new things, challenge themselves and make new friends but we do need the girls and the leaders to support those girls.

If you have questions on recruiting girls or leaders, transition to the next section or if you need help with DBS to LQ or you are a commissioner wanting to find your way round GO, just get in touch.
