About Us

Girlguiding Cumbria South

Opportunity & Adventure Across South Cumbria!

Girlguiding Cumbria South

 

Here, at Girlguiding Cumbria South, we give girls of all ages a voice. We offer weekly unit meetings full of fun and challenge to girls aged between 4 -18 across the whole of south Cumbria. We are a volunteer team of leaders, commissioners, unit helpers and advisors who create amazing opportunities for girls and young women to learn and grow.

Our volunteer team is amazing! They deliver unique experiences to girls and young women through unit meetings, trips, sleepovers, pack holidays, internationals, adventure days, and more recently virtually! Training and development go hand in hand with our amazing volunteers as they not only learn new skills to enable activities for our young members but also develop skills for themselves.

As a volunteer team we offer fun, laughter (lots of), support, advice and lots of tea and biscuits!!

We help girls reach their potential.
