About Us

Girlguiding North West England has over 68,000 members in our Region, across 17 guiding Counties. We enable our members to discover and fulfil their potential through an exciting range of enjoyable activities and events, so they can make a positive contribution to their community and make a difference to the world. We aim to support both our younger members and adult volunteers to go the extra mile, truly putting girls in the lead.

Girlguiding North West England is continually evolving to ensure we stay relevant to today’s girls. We give girls and young women a voice in the modern world, providing fun and friendship along the way, whilst preserving the values of Girlguiding that have made it the largest organisation for girls and young women in the UK.

Our Region

Our Region

We’re lucky enough that our Region includes some of the most beautiful scenery and interesting places to visit in the country. We enjoy a rich heritage, beautiful countryside and coastal areas, and stunning cityscapes all on our door step! We provide a fun and exciting girl-only space from the top of Cumbria, right down to the bottom of Cheshire, across to the Pennines and then over the water to the Isle of Man. Our Region is split into areas, known as Counties, each run by a lead volunteer, our County Commissioners.
