Girlguiding is dedicated to creating a better world for girls and young women. We empower girls, we give them space to grow and we ensure that each on of them can get involved – no matter what their background or ability.
We hold regular weekly meetings during term time, led by trained volunteers.

Within Cleveland we do have units that are attended by girls with additional needs,
We work with the parents to build up a good rapport between leaders and their family to ensure we do everything we can to make the member's time with guiding as enjoyable as possible.
Most units average 15-20 young members so not much larger than a school classroom, and this gives leaders the opportunity to get to know the younger members, however this doesn't always mean on a 1:1 basis.
As volunteers from all walks of life, we rely on other volunteer leaders around the county who are trained in such skills wherever there is a need for a leader to have some extra support.
