National Code of Conduct
Working Together in Guiding
The Girl Guides Australia Code of Conduct (the Code) defines the standards of behaviour expected of all adults participating in Girl Guiding in Australia. It is designed primarily for our volunteers and can equally be utilised for our staff.
Called “Working Together in Guiding” the Code is designed to ensure that all adult members, volunteers and employees of Girl Guides Australia (GGA) and State Girl Guide Organisations are aware of their obligations and responsibilities.
It has been developed by the Girl Guides Australia HR Committee (a committee of the Board of GIrl Guides Australia) with input and feedback from across all Girl Guide Organisations.
The Code has been adopted across Australia and, will be implemented through the Learning and Development program for adult volunteers over the next 12 months. As of release all adults involved in Girl Guiding in Australia are expected to adhere to the Code of Conduct.
The Code of Conduct is available in hard copy in most Girl Guide offices in your state/territory office. Alternatively you can download the posters and support materials below.
Any questions and queries regarding the Code of Conduct can be directed to your State Commissioner and/or your State Learning and Development Manager.
