Girlguiding Cumbria South are looking for volunteers to assist with Rainbow, Brownie or Guide units in our area. Young Leaders aged 14 and over can gain skills that enable them to ensure their CV is enhanced for University applications and have lots of fun doing it. Adult Volunteers can come to a unit in Hawkshead, Ambleside, and Windermere to assist with girls aged from 5 upwards. Everyone needs a DBS to assist.

We have a unit of Senior Section members in Ambleside for young women aged 14 -26 years.

We also have teams of PR , Events and Adventure, Finance, Grant Applications ,Arts and Media,  so we need a wealth of skills to enable girls and woman to have the adventure that is Girlguiding.

If you would be interested in sharing your skills at a unit or within our County please visit www.girlguiding.org/joinus We would love to welcome you.
