Trefoil Guild is a branch of Girlguiding with around 20,000 members, which enables men and women to maintain their links with guiding.

Their aims are:

  • To live in the spirit of guiding
  • To offer practical help to Girlguiding
  • To support guiding worldwide
  • To carry the spirit of guiding and Scouting into the community

Many members pass on their skills and knowledge to local Girlguiding units, from helping Brownies work towards a badge to preparing older girls for a camping adventure. Many members are unit leaders or helpers in Girlguiding units.

The Trefoil Guild offers a warm welcome to everyone, male or female, aged 18 or over, whether or not they have previously been connected with the Guide Movement. Full membership is open to anyone willing to make or renew the Guide/Scout Promise and affiliated membership to those who don’t wish to do so, provided they subscribe to the aims and principles of Girlguiding . There’s also associate membership for any adult still active in the Guide/Scout Association.

Members of Guilds throughout Oxfordshire enjoy all the tremendous benefits of belonging to Girlguiding . Many Guild activities result in positive benefit to the community, but as any Guild member will tell you, a large part of the programme is devoted to having plain old-fashioned fun!

So if you’ve recently left Girlguiding and want to stay involved with the Movement, or if you’ve never been a member but would like to support guiding in your area, The Trefoil Guild is for you. It’s a chance to make new friends, help other people, develop your own skills and, most of all, have fun.
