A group for every girl in Leeds and the surrounding area
Rainbows are aged 5 – 7, learn by doing, they get their hands dirty, do sports, arts and crafts, and play games.
Brownies are aged 7 – 10, make their own decisions, learn new hobbies, develop skills and explore other cultures.
Guides are aged from 10-14, they plan their own meetings and explore new places, go on camps and trips, and learn skills for life.
What people say about us
‘Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for my daughter and the girls over the years. She’s loved coming and has gained so much from it. It’s been great to see her grow and develop in ways she never would without it… Thank you for your help and everything you have done.’
‘I love volunteering with Girlguiding because it’s great fun and hugely rewarding. I love the idea that the girls have a space to make their own decisions, explore what’s important to them, to try new and adventurous activities and to become more independent. We give the girls confidence that they can do anything and they can play an important part in the world.’
‘Thanks so much for the opportunities you have given my daughter. It’s lovely that you are such an inclusive place to be. Going away without us is such a massive thing to do and we are so grateful. We are both sat here on the edge of tears knowing that she’s achieved such a big milestone and has loved every moment. Thank you to all the volunteers who make these things possible.’
‘I’d just like to say how fantastic you are at arranging new and bringing innovative ideas to the brownie group. My daughter always enjoys every session and feels like a valued part of the group. Her confidence has grown and she has made new friends.’
New Brownie Parent
‘I would like to thank you all for the effort you put in to making Brownies so enjoyable. My daughter has struggled socially at school and so the enjoyment she gets out of attending Brownies is something we are very grateful for.’
‘Being a leader is immensely rewarding. I came back to guiding because my daughter’s unit was in danger of closing following the retirement of the previous unit team. Nearly 4 years later I still get so much pleasure from seeing the girls have fun, encouraging them to try new things and challenge themselves. And watching them grow in confidence as a result.’
