Growing guiding

We have plenty of ideas to help you recruit and retain more members!

We want to ensure that we reach as many girls as possible and that they are supported by a strong network of talented and enthusiastic Leaders and volunteers. Here you’ll find practical advice on recruiting more young and adult members, and guidance on promoting the benefits and successes of our organisation.

Recruiting and Retaining Volunteers

Recruiting and retaining volunteers is all about being flexible with times, venues and roles

By working around your volunteers and the skills they have to offer, you’ll strengthen leadership in your area and be able to welcome more adults into guiding. Thanks and recognition also play a key part in keeping volunteers engaged. Learn more about how you can expand and improve your local team.

Recruiting and Retaining Girls

There are countless ways to recruit and retain more young members

And it doesn’t matter where you are or what budget you’re working with. From making small changes within your unit to running school taster sessions, growing guiding is all about being fun and flexible – and girls in your unit can help out too!
