Raising the Bar 2017-18

At Girlguiding Essex North East, we are dedicated to celebrating the value of our existing volunteers and girls, and as such we have designed our ‘Raising The Bar’ challenge aimed at promoting guiding at its very best. We want to encourage our girls, leaders and other volunteers to get the most possible from their Guiding journey. The County aims to support our leaders to deliver a programme of activities and adventures for the girls, to help them to learn about themselves and gain the skills and confidence to realise their dreams.  We want to showcase guiding in our county to potential new members, to enable them to see the adventures and opportunities Guiding has to offer.


There will be five badges, a new badge will be launched each academic year (Sept – August), we challenge you to earn as many of the ‘Raising The Bar’ badges as you can during the next five years.  The criteria for the first badge (2017-2018) is shown below. To earn this badge girls and leaders must complete a minimum of 3 challenges.


Good luck and have fun! We would love to see what you have been up to, so please remember to take photographs whilst completing the challenges and send them to us at [email protected]

Please ensure full photo permissions are held for all girls featured in photos.
