Unit support grant.

Unit support grant 2024.

Finances should never be a barrier for a volunteer or young member to take part in Girlguiding, which is why we have created this grant scheme to support members.

Thanks to a funding from Girlguiding we are able to offer a unit support grant this year. Our unit support grant is available to units to help subsidise adult volunteers and young members guiding costs.
Grants will be considered quarterly by the Region finance and risk group.

If successful they will be paid by BACS into a unit bank account, they cannot be paid into a personal bank account.

About the grant

The purpose of this grant is to ensure all adult volunteers and young members are able to participate in Girlguiding.

The grant can be used to cover the costs directly incurred by adult volunteers and young members participating in Girlguiding.

What can be funded?

Grant funding can be used to cover the costs directly incurred by a volunteer or young member participating in Girlguiding, including:

  • Annual Subscriptions – the subscription fee to take part in Girlguiding, including support for flexible volunteering opportunities if the unit is unable to fund e.g., a student volunteering or a volunteer who can only attend on certain days due to shift working or caring responsibilities.
  • Unit Subscriptions – where the cost is prohibitive for a young member taking part in meetings.
  • Rent – costs incurred to hold regular meetings.
  • Travel – costs incurred by the volunteers getting to/from Girlguiding activities, who could not otherwise afford to regularly attend.
  • Uniform – any item of uniform.
  • Special Events and Trips – where the cost is prohibitive for a member taking part.
