Registered charity number 306016.
1 of 2
Use this plan only if a young member has an additional need or requirement that means she needs support with
personal care during unit activities or residential events.
Please note that it is not a requirement to complete the Girlguiding Personal Care Plan for members with
additional needs. If a member has a pre-existing personal care plan this can be used in place of a Girlguiding plan.
This should be used to facilitate a discussion with the parents about how best to support the young person.
Complete this plan together with the parent/carer and young person (if appropriate). Use it in addition to the
relevant Girlguiding forms such as Starting Rainbows/Brownies/Guides/The Senior Section, Information and Consent
for Event/Activity, and Health Information. This plan is designed to ensure you have sufﬁcient information to
manage a young person’s personal care during meetings, on outings, at residential events and so on. It is important
that the plan is reviewed regularly to ensure it is up to date. If you feel you require further information, training or
advice, please contact your Commissioner or Country/Region Adviser for members with additional needs.
