Welcome to Inspire!


Explore the Inspire offer with a few frequently asked questions.

What is Inspire?

Inspire is a community for members of Girlguiding aged 18-30. With Inspire, you will get access to opportunities which are divided into seven ‘Pathways’. You’ll also have a chance to get to know other members, with exciting social events.

How can I join the community?

In Essex South East, the easiest way to stay connected to Inspire is by joining our Facebook group, where you a selection of County, Region and National activities is advertised. You should also consent to marketing on GO, so that you can receive county emails, which will highlight Inspire opportunities and events too.

How can I tailor my own Inspire journey?

Inspire really is what you make of it. It’s entirely flexible and you can get involved with as little or as much as you like. As well as joining the Essex South East community, you can also explore the available opportunities yourself. There are lots of ways to do this, and various methods are described below (with links to the relevant pages), so you can choose what suits you best.
