Herefordshire Carers Support is working together with Girlguiding Herefordshire to offer more girls and their parents the opportunity to take part in Girlguiding.
The leading charity is open to all girls and young women in the UK aged between 5 and 25 and offers the chance to get involved in your community, grow in confidence, reach your full potential and enjoy the fun and adventure of guiding. Girls enjoy a hugely varied programme of activities from abseiling to messy science investigations and much, much more.
We will work together and alongside parents/Parent Carers to fully understand individual needs so that girls needing additional support can join the most suitable Unit. A Carer can also attend Unit meetings to provide extra support if necessary.
Young Carers may like to take a break from their responsibilities by joining one of the Units and again individual needs will be understood e.g. letting you keep your mobile phone on if required, accepting that you may need to leave at short notice, arrive late etc.
Similarly, parents who would like a break from their caring responsibilities may like to help as a volunteer with one of the Units. Girlguides are happy to talk about any time you can offer and welcomes volunteers of all backgrounds, abilities and faiths – it’s very flexible and can fit around a busy lifestyle. There are a huge number of ways volunteers can support girls in guiding from training as a Leader to smaller supporting roles including accounting, driving and event helpers. In return volunteers are offered support, specialised training and the opportunity to develop new skills, meet new people and enjoy themselves.
For more information about any of the above opportunities, please call Herefordshire Carers Support on 01432 356068, we can put you in contact with Girlguide Adviser, Karen Hughes
