GGAN Help Fund

About the GGAN Help Fund


This fund will be used to provide grants to members who require support to take part in Guiding activities or purchase Guiding resources. The fund has been set up to support those who could not afford to take part/purchase resources otherwise.


We aim to review and respond to any requests within 3 weeks.


This fund could be used for members in circumstances such as;


  • Multiple family members are in Girlguiding
  • Unemployed/receiving benefits
  • Recent drop in income (e.g. sick pay, maternity pay, redundancy etc)
