County Commissioner Handbook

Thank you for being a County Commissioner. Your role is vital to driving guiding forwards in your area.

PLEASE NOTE: We are gradually moving content from this website over to the main Girlguiding website, and aim to have this completed in 2021. This means that some of the information you read on here, may not be the most up-to-date. If you’re unable to find the information you need, please contact Commissioner Support (September 2020)


This resource is designed as a ‘how-to’ guide for new County Commissioners, as well as a quick reference in important areas of County Commissioner work. It accompanies the Commissioner Handbook and will point you towards other useful guiding resources and information from external sources, providing links to those available online.
