Girlguiding South West England


It is 20 years since a Region trip to Volga 2000, a Jamboree in Russia.  If you were a part of that trip, Steph Squire would like to hear from you, 'With the intention of arranging some sort of reunion in the future, face to face or virtually'.


Many thanks to the amazing Region members who have raised over £600 for Girlguiding South West England by holding all kinds of imaginative sponsored events as part of The 2.6 Challenge held on 26th April in place of the London Marathon. 


Girlguiding's Advocate Panel is made up of a group of 18 members aged between 14 and 25 from across the Countries and Regions, including South West England.  They come to the panel with different perspectives and ideas to learn new skills and discuss issues that matter to them and their peers, and are able to lead the direction of Girlguiding's advocacy and research.


New measures announced by the UK Government on 16th March 2020 around Coronavirus (COVID-19) advise against all non-essential travel and social contact.  As a result, we have taken the decision to close the Girlguiding South West England Region Office from Friday 20th March 2020 until further notice.


The 10 charities chosen by our members to benefit from the Chief's Charity Challenge 2020-21 are:

  • Cancer Research UK
  • The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association
  • Macmillan Cancer Support
  • British Heart Foundation
  • Childline 
  • World Wildlife Fund
  • WaterAid
  • RNLI
  • Alzheimer's Society

GGSWE Logo - Where Guiding Goes On

The Girlguiding South West England Region is made up of 16 diverse Counties and Islands, each with Divisions and/or Districts and individual Units which are often quite unique from their neighbours.  All enjoy a variety of advantages and face different challenges, but the Region’s Leaders and Commissioners work hard to ensure that Guiding continues to be fun and accessible to as many girls as possible, of all ages, regardless of where they live.
