Thanks and Recognition
At Girlguiding, it is important to say a huge thank you to our amazing volunteers and to recognise their generous work within all our units and divisions. Without them, guiding simply wouldn’t be possible. Girlguiding has several ways of saying thank you to its thousands of volunteers. 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.
There are many ways in which you can show your appreciation to volunteers, Unit Helpers or supportive parents. Another way of showing your appreciation can be through nominating them for an award. For those volunteers who provide outstanding service nominations can be made by their peers. This can be done regionally and nationally.
