The unit meetings that girls go along to are at the heart of guiding. At these they get messy, make new friends and take part in activities and adventures to help them discover their potential. Our commissioners lead girlguiding in their area, motivating and inspiring other local volunteers to make our meetings happen.

Could you volunteer as a division commissioner? We are looking for volunteers in the following areas of Surrey East county: Leatherhead, Leith Hill and  Downs Heath.  To be successful in the role, you would need to have good people skills, be organised and able to encourage and inspire others. You don’t need any specific qualifications or previous guiding experience to become a commissioner. We’ll give you training as part of your role. Two or more people can share this role, becoming joint commissioners. You can also appoint assistant division commissioners to support you. There are plenty of exciting and creative ways to split the role, based on your interests, skills and passions.

Becoming a commissioner offers the opportunity to become part of the Surrey East county executive team and influence guiding in your local area supporting our volunteers.
