The Community Match Challenge Regional Grant is available to help units recover from the impact of the pandemic.  You can apply for any amount up to £200 and this can be used to help with the costs of keeping your unit running either face-to-face or virtually.  Please note:  You are not eligible if you have already received a Community Match Challenge Grant from Girlguiding. 


Girlguiding South West England is a charitable organisation which provides opportunities for over 80,000 Members to enjoy the unique experience that Guiding offers throughout South West England and the Channel Islands. People sometimes forget we are a charity and that we rely on the generosity of our Members and supporters to allow us to provide these opportunities.

There are many ways in which you could help support us financially. For more information, please contact the Region Office on 01722 329306.


By registering your unit with easyfundraising, you and your supporters can turn online purchases into free donations.  It's a practical and low-effort way of raising money from the comfort of your home and you don't have to change who you shop with either!  easyfundraising work with over 6,000 retailers including Amazon, John Lewis, Sainsbury's, Etsy, Argos and Viking.  


The Region's evening Roadshows provide us with an opportunity to explain to local businesses and organisations the opportunities that modern Girlguiding offers girls and young women.  At one Roadshow, both the local Lions Club and the local Council came forward and asked how they could help support local Units. This resulted in the Lions Club offering to pay for transport and accommodation to enable girls to attend a Region event.

Girlguiding in South West England can provide excellent opportunities for companies and organisations to support girls and young women in the 21st Century. We look for partnerships that will enhance the experience of our Members though innovative programmes, events and resources.  By working in partnership with us, your company will gain access to our audience, which includes both girl members and adult volunteers and by partnering a leading national youth organisation you could improve brand recognition. We aim to satisfy the objectives of both partners and look to build on-going relationships with the companies and organisations we work with.
