Girlguiding Swinton Division covers a wide area including Boothstown, Clifton, Ellenbrook, Pendlebury, Swinton Walkden, Wardley and Worsley. We have a team of dedicated volunteers who are committed to delivering an outstanding experience to girls and young women.

Girls who are between 5 and 7 years old are welcome to join our Rainbow units.  We have a number of units meeting Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. You are bound to find a safe place close to home or school for her to look, learn and laugh with a whole bunch of new friends.

For 7 to 10-year-old girls, we have several  Brownie units in the Swinton area.  There are Brownie packs in Swinton, Clifton, Worsley, Walkden, Boothstown, Little Hulton, Pendlebury and Wardley, meeting on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights, so there should be one that fits in with your girl's love of adventure where she can explore, have fun and make discoveries.

Our 9 Guide units in the Swinton area cater for girls between 10 and 14 years old. We have lots of activities which take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights in Swinton, Clifton, Worsley, Walkden, Boothstown, Little Hulton, Pendlebury and Wardley.  Guides provides an ideal environment for your daughter to get involved in all kinds of activities that you wouldn't find in school or at home.

For young women older than 14 we have lots of opportunities to become a Young Leader helping one of our local units or we have one Ranger unit that meets in the Swinton area on a Wednesday night. The opportunities are immense, from international volunteering to improving your CV.

For anyone over 18 (male or female) there are lots of opportunities to become an Adult Volunteer helping the units on a weekly basis or we have district helpers who help with Admin tasks such as PR or accounts once a month. For people who want to have a connection with Guiding, there is a Trefoil Guild that meets in Swinton.
