What is the Trefoil Guild?

A non-uniformed section of the Guide Association. It aims to keep alive the spirit of the Promise and Law and offers practical help to Guiding.

Support, Fun, Friendship and Challenge.

The Trefoil Guild enables men and women to establish and, more often, maintain their links with Guiding. Members do not wear uniform.

The Trefoil Guild offers members opportunities to meet with friends, develop interests, tackle new challenges and enjoy holidays together. Membership also involves being active in a wider community, as an individual or as a Guild, through voluntary work or other commitment.

Who may join?

The Trefoil Guild offers a warm welcome to everyone, male or female, aged 18 or over, whether or not they have previously been connected with the Guide Movement. Full membership is open to anyone willing to make or renew the Guide/Scout promise and affiliated membership to those who don’t wish to do so provided they subscribe to the aims and principles of Girlguiding UK. 

Members of over 1,100 local Guilds throughout the UK enjoy all the tremendous benefits of belonging to Girlguiding UK. 

Many Guild activities result in positive benefit to the community, but as any Guild member will tell you, a large part of the programme is devoted to having plain old-fashioned fun!

So if you’ve recently left Girlguiding UK and want to stay involved with the Movement, or if you’ve never been a member but would like to support Guiding in your area, The Trefoil Guild is for you. It’s the chance to make new friends, help other people, develop your own skills and, most of all, have fun... just as the Guides do.Why not give it a try? We’re waiting to meet you!
