There is no official retirement age for Girlguiding volunteers. Please visit the main Girlguiding website for the most up to date information about retirement, including details of Girlguiding’s insurance cover for members of different ages.
At times you may need to speak to a volunteer of any age about their role in Girlguiding. It may be that you feel they need further support to fulfill their responsibilities and you want to find out how to best enable them to thrive in their role, or perhaps a volunteer isn’t following the code of conduct and you have concerns about their behaviour. The following links on the Girlguiding website may be useful to guide you in these conversations:
- Code of conduct
- Approaching sensitive conversations
- Managing concerns about adult volunteers
- Using role descriptions in your team
