Why do Girl Guides wear a uniform?
Our uniform helps to create a strong sense of identity and encourages the non-competitive social atmosphere of Guides.
The Guide sash displays the badges the Guide has achieved.
Girls wear track suits and jeans, and the only requirement is that pants are navy in colour and the Girl Guides shirt is worn.
Guides is a Not for Profit Organisation so the total cost is as low as it can be.
There is an annual membership fee which includes insurance for the member. Units will also levy small fees by the week or term to cover insurance for the hall and other minor costs.
New girls have two weeks to decide whether they want to stay or not before fees are due.
Guides also fundraise (e.g. through biscuit drives) to raise money to help with other costs such as training and the maintenance of their facilities and equipment.
