Girlguiding Durham South brings guiding to over 3000 girls and young women in the County Durham and Darlington area. The Durham South county includes Girlguiding members from Barnard Castle, Bishop Auckland, Chester-Le-Street, Darlington, Durham, East Durham, Newton Aycliffe, Seaham, Sedgefield and Weardale. We aim to build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good. Durham South is home to nine divisions, and we have several residential premises for activities and sleeping over.
