Trefoil Guild



  Guiding for Adults – fun, friendship and making a difference

In Trefoil Guild, women and men aged 18+ make new friends, travel, explore, serve their communities and help Guiding (and Scouting) thrive across the UK!

Whether you’re involved in Guiding or not, Trefoil Guild is a wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded people to share your next adventure – whatever that might be!

Trefoil Guild is a branch of Girlguiding and its members agree to support the Guiding ethos – including the pledge to help other people. Many members pass on their skills and knowledge to local guiding units, from helping Brownies work towards a badge to preparing older girls for a camping adventure.  Many members are unit leaders or helpers in Girlguiding units.

But it’s not all about the girls – there are plenty of opportunities for members to try something new, take on a new personal challenge and escape the daily routine. The best thing is that what you do is up to you!

Across the UK, there are over 1,100 Trefoil Guilds with over 20,000 members – some meet every week, others less frequently, perhaps in the evening or at weekends. There’s even an Internet Guild for members who prefer to meet online, and Trefoil Guild in Foreign Countries and UK Overseas Territories (TGIFC and Branch Associations) for those moving outside the UK.
