About Us

Geographically, Sussex is split into West Sussex and East Sussex. However, in guiding terms, we are split into Sussex West, Sussex Central and Sussex East.  We are situated on the South Coast of England, in the UK.

Girlguiding Sussex West is one of 19 Countries that make up Girlguiding London and South East England Region (LaSER).  LaSER is one of nine Regions and Countries of Girlguiding UK, the largest voluntary organisation for girls and young women in the UK.

Girlguiding Sussex West includes over 4000 Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Senior Section members.  We provide a unique girl-only environment where you can be comfortable just being yourself, whilst exploring the activities, issues and possibilities that are available to girls today. We have over 500 Adult Volunteers carrying out a range of roles including Leaders, Commissioners, Trainers, Treasurers and Advisers. 

We welcome members and supporters from all cultures and socio-economic backgrounds. Girlguiding gives girls and young women a voice, we have always put girls in the lead and provided encouragement to voice their views.  Our girls take part in a huge selection of activities, learning essential life skills, having fun and making many friends along the way.
