Space to Grow Together was a joint project with the Scout Association to
make sure that even more young people had access to the skills and fun
that we offer.
An incredible £2.4million was secured from Pears Foundation, #iwill, the
National Lottery Community Fund and the Department for Culture, Media
and Sport to fund the project.
As a Growth and Communities Coordinator, I had the opportunity to work
with Manchester, Stockport, and Lancs SE. My target was to open 16 new
units, recruit 48 volunteers, and create 240 spaces for girls. My role
involved empowering current leaders to be able to create amazing
opportunities while giving new volunteers the confidence they need to
open new units and start their Girlguiding journey.
