What we do

Our vision is to enable all our girls, young women, leaders and volunteers to fulfil their potential, have adventure, experience different opportunities and have fun in a safe girl-only environment.

British Girlguiding Overseas is part of UK Girlguiding. Units are based in many parts of the world, either in UK Overseas territories or in areas where it is impossible or inappropriate for reasons such as language or culture for the girls to join the local national organisation. Members make the same promise as in the UK, follow the current programme as appropriate to their Section and wherever possible follow the policy and rules of Girlguiding.


Many congratulations to Caroline Coleman who has just received the Laurel Award for exceptional service to guiding in BGO. Diane presented the award virtually at a meeting of the Exec on 29 March and Alicia Hol was able to give it to Caroline in person. A very well deserved award.
