Inspire is our community for women aged 18-30

Girlguiding Inspire is the community built for and by Girlguiding’s 18-30 year old members.  Whether you’re looking for adventure, to travel the world, develop skills or for fun with new friends, there’s a place in Girlguiding Inspire for you!

Inspire has been designed to enable as many young people as possible to find their place within Girlguiding and the wider world. The aim is to expand the opportunities available to young women to develop and socialise as well as to promote a more flexible model of volunteering.
