"Girlguiding’s is deeply saddened by the tragic events in Manchester on Monday 22 May. The families of all those affected are in our hearts.
Our movement is based on core values of caring, inclusion, helping others and bringing communities together – values which are so important in difficult and confusing times. Sad events can be difficult for young people to understand and come to terms with and Girlguiding has an important role to play in helping young people understand and talk about their feelings. This guidance is designed to support leaders talk to our young people in following tragic events."
