Welcome to Girlguiding Birmingham

Welcome to our wonderful, diverse, family of Girlguiding Birmingham,

a fabulous mix of cultures and religions, spanning the whole of

Birmingham from Kings Norton to Sutton Coldfield.


Rainbows is all about developing self-confidence, building friendships,

learning new things and having fun. Girls get their hands dirty with arts and crafts,

trying out cooking and playing games. Rainbows is all about learning by doing.


Through regular meetings, special events, day trips, sleepovers,

camps and holidays, Brownies learn new hobbies, play music,

explore other cultures and get adventurous outdoors.


By becoming part of a worldwide community of girls

who learn together and share skills and experiences, Guides

have the chance to get out there and do something really different.


For unique and exciting opportunities, including travel in the UK and around

the world, volunteering with younger girls within Girlguiding as a

Mentor or Leader, and working towards valuable qualifications.
