Safeguarding and promoting the safety and well being of girls, young women and adults is the first priority of Girlguiding. It’s at the heart of everything we do, and it’s the responsibility of every Girlguiding volunteer, member and member of staff.
It’s extremely important that you’re clear about your safeguarding responsibilities, and about Girlguiding’s commitment to safeguarding. The Girlguiding website has lots of information for you about safeguarding.
What to do if you have a concern
If you have a concern about a girl, young woman or adult in Girlguiding you should read our A Safe Space pocket guide and follow the procedure set out in our process for receiving disclosures and our process for allegations and concerns.
