 An update from Girlguiding about coronavirus (Covid-19)

You will have seen the UK Government announce new measures around coronavirus (Covid-19) on Monday 16 March that advised against all non-essential travel and social contact.

We have taken the decision, therefore, to suspend UK Girlguiding unit meetings with immediate effect.

We realise that this news is upsetting, please do support friends and girls within the Girlguiding community at this time, and those beyond our network.

Although we are not meeting face to face, we will remain connected with our amazing community of volunteers and girls across the UK. We will be sharing our ideas as to how girls can continue to enjoy our brilliant programme of activities and badges from home and ways stay in touch with their unit over the coming days.

We'll be updating this page to answer your questions and as we receive new and relevant information, keeping our community safe is our top priority. 

This information is for members who do their guiding in the UK. If you're a Girlguiding member overseas, check the local government advice for the country you operate in, and contact the chief commissioner for BGO or the Branches Advisor with any questions or concerns. 

We’re monitoring and staying up to date with UK Government and Public Health England and are following their advice as the situation evolves.
