Diversity and Inclusion


Girlguiding’s ambition for diversity and inclusion is to be a place where everyone is welcome, is free to be themselves, and has an equal sense of belonging. 

Girlguiding’s ambition for diversity and inclusion is to be a place where everyone is welcome, is free to be themselves, and has an equal sense of belonging.

Being inclusive is important to us, a big part of that is making sure we give everyone a chance to do amazing things, whoever they are and wherever they’re from.

Meg is our County Inclusion Adviser, here to support and provide guidance to our volunteers at all levels, to help make Girlguiding more inclusive and support our diverse members.

She is also one of Girlguiding’s national volunteer inclusion advisers and between the team they have a wealth of expertise and lived experience of different areas of inclusion, including disability, mental health, young carers, race, LGBTQ+ and faith.

Meg, Inclusion Adviser

Meg joined Girlguiding after acquiring a lifelong and life-changing disability, seeking to continue with her passion for helping others. She is determined to help provide a space and experience which empowers members to grow, explore and reach their potential, and challenge any barriers that exclude those from opportunities based on difference. Meg recognises that not every unit or individual is the same nor do they have the same experiences and takes the time to understand each matter through a person centered approach whilst also considering the wider context of the organisation.

Girlguiding’s Including All web page contains some general resources and support for volunteers to enable you to include all members and give them a great guiding experience.

However, you can contact Meg by email at eseinclusion@gmail.com, where you can discuss a specific inclusion matter and receive a more person centred approach to any support, advice and guidance you need.

All members have a responsibility to follow Girlguiding’s Equality and Diversity Policy and Girlguiding members should not be disadvantaged by unjustifiable conditions or requirements, or experience less-favourable treatment because of any of the protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010. So, please get in touch if you feel you need any support with this.
