South Yorkshire Trefoil Guild

Trefoil Guild is a branch of Girlguiding and has its own constitution, is financially independent, is a registered charity and is administered independently.

Membership is open to all above the age of 18, whether they have been involved in Guiding or Scouting or would just like the companionship of friends, as long as they agree with the aims and principles of the two organisations.

There are nine Guilds in South Yorkshire, spread across the three towns, four Guilds in Barnsley, three in Doncaster and two in Rotherham.

Our aims are to help local Guiding and Scouting wherever we can, and are always available to give practical and moral support.   All Guilds have their own interests, enjoy days out, socialising and meet according to the consensus of their members, usually once a month.

We help new units with starter packs and help within Units when asked.

To join is so easy, simply contact your own Division Commissioner who will put you in touch with your local Trefoil Chair or contact the South Yorkshire County Chair – Mrs Janet Haigh on 01226 383608.

Members with Additional Needs

Girlguiding is an inclusive organisation which values and celebrates each other’s differences.

Some of our members have additional needs and we adapt our activities so that they can participate and enjoy the activities we offer.

Girlguiding South Yorkshire has a Special Needs Team who support leaders; suggesting ways to assess and adapt activities to reduce the barriers to their involvement.  Leaders work closely with parents to ensure the child’s needs are met, where possible.
