Girlguiding Edinburgh

Who We Are

Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK. We build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good. We give them a space to have fun.


Is about helping to put a smile on young faces and creating confident young women. It’s also a great way to make new friends.

There are 2036 Brownies in Edinburgh and they all follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure – a world of exciting opportunities, challenges and most of all, fun.

The Brownie Adventure is divided into three sections: You, Community and World.

Through this action-packed programme, girls can build confidence by developing new skills, learning about the wider community, finding out about different cultures and getting involved with global issues like the environment and endangered species.

Edinburgh Brownies attend meetings that are packed with all sorts of games, crafts, outings and challenges. We are fond of campfires too, and love nothing more than getting together with Rainbows and Guides from all over the city for a great big sing song!

Girls can earn Brownie interest badges which cover a huge range of hobbies, from circus skills to exploring wildlife and everything in between, and they are encouraged to work towards them at home too.

Suitable for ages 7 - 10.
