Statement of Purpose

Girlguiding UK enables girls and young women to develop their potential and to make a difference to the world.

Guiding’s distinctive method

Guiding in the United Kingdom is based on a number of principles:-

• commitment to the ideals embodied in the Promise and Law
• membership that is open to all girls and women irrespective of faith, race, culture, nationality or any other circumstances, provided they are able to understand and are willing to make or work towards making the Promise.
• membership which is voluntary.
• a particular method of learning by doing – guiding uses a method with five distinct elements (known as the five essentials of Guiding) that interlink:-

1. Brownies work together in small groups.
2. Brownies are encouraged to govern themselves & make their own decisions.
3. Brownies have a balanced and varied programme.
4. Brownies care for the individual.
5. Guides and Brownies share a commitment to a common standard.
• independence from any political organisation.
• membership which is self-governing, with freedom to formulate its policy and put it into practice.
