It’s important that we recognise the amazing contribution that our members make to Girlguiding and our region. Without them, guiding simply wouldn’t be possible. There are many ways you can show your appreciation to volunteers or other guiding members. One way to recognise someone’s contribution is to nominate them for an award. Girlguiding North East England offers two awards for those who have shown exceptional dedication to guiding and those who deserve to be recognised for doing or achieving something outstanding the Crown Award and the Chief Commissioner Award. Members can also be nominated for national awards for excellent leadership, an exceptional contribution to a wide section of the Girlguiding movement and another award for displaying outstanding courage, responsibility or initiative.
Volunteers automatically receive the service awards for the years of service they provide. The first award is given after they have been a volunteer for five years.
