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 all about developing self-confidence, building friendships, learning new things and having fun.

Girls get together every week for one hour enjoying games, cookery, outings and arts and crafts.

Rainbows follow a programme called the Rainbow Jigsaw, which is split into four parts: Look, Learn, Laugh, Love.

Look: We encourage girls to look around them, learn about their own environment/community and understand that they are part of a wider world.

Learn: Rainbows learn by taking part in a wide range of activities such as trying out crafts and recipes, playing games and visiting local places of interest.

Laugh: Rainbows have lots of fun. Meetings involve games, songs, parties, celebrations and making a mess! Girls love sleepovers too!

Love: Through Rainbows, girls learn about caring and sharing with family and friends, working together, fair play, and being considerate and helpful to others.

If your daughter would like to join the over 1,000 Rainbows in the Edinburgh area, please get in touch."

If your daughter would like to join the 1,000+ Rainbows in the Edinburgh area, please get in touch.

Suitable for ages 5 - 7.

Guiding units charge 'subs' to cover the cost of equipment and hire of the meeting place. These can be paid weekly, monthly or each term. There is also an annual subscription which covers the day-to-day running of the organisation. This is sometimes included in the subs. Subs vary from area to area - your local unit Leader will be able to tell you how much the subs are and when they need to be paid.

There is usually an extra charge for special activities, days out, residential events and holidays. We don't want girls to miss out through financial hardship. If concerns about finances may prevent your daughter taking part in guiding or in some activities, speak to your local Unit Leader as some assistance may be available.
