A Study has found that people who were in guides or scouts as a child have better mental health in later life.

Researchers from Edinburgh and Glasgow universities, analysed a study of 10,000 people and found ex-members were 15% less likely to suffer anxiety than other adults at the age of 50.

Researchers believe it could be the lessons in resilience and resolve that such organisations offer that has a lasting positive impact.

Girlguiding is open to girls of any background from 5-25 and we are always looking for adult volunteers, for more details have a look at our Join Us page.
