Girl Guides NSW & ACT and NT merger: what changes?

31 OCTOBER 2019

The NT and NSW & ACT merger is in the final stages and you’ll start to see some changes soon.
The first, is the use of a slightly different logo and we’ll start referring to our Association as Girl Guides NSW, ACT & NT.

Next the web address will change to include the Northern Territory: The new address is live already, but we'll keep the old one going for a while too.

Our social media will begin to look a bit different, with our Facebook and Instagram profiles becoming @girlguidesnswactnt from 15 November.

You will also see the phone number advertised everywhere change.  We've always used 1300 447 548 (1300 GIRL GUIDES) all around the country for member enquiries. Territorian members can also use this phone number to reach Guide House, the head office of Girl Guides NSW, ACT & NT, for the cost of a local call. Phone calls to 02 8396 5200 will still go through to Guide House. 

The merger with Northern Territory adds more than 200 girls to the existing NSW & ACT membership base of 5600, boosting the youth girl number of Girl Guides to 5800 plus, supported by a network of nearly 1900 adult volunteer members.

As soon as the merger process is complete, Girl Guides NSW, ACT & NT will have 12 Regions: ACT & South East NSW; Central West; Coastal Valleys; Cumberland Plains; Greater Rivers; North Pacific Coast; Northern Sydney; Northern Territory; North West Inland; South Coast & Highlands; Southern Sydney Rivers; and, Twin Rivers. Each of these Regions is managed by a volunteer Region Manager.

Within these Regions there are more than 240 Districts, looked after by volunteer District Managers and committees. These 240+ Districts are home to more than 525 Units, where around 7800 Members have a place to grow. A place that is a space for girls to develop their path at their pace.

For enquiries about the merger or Girl Guides, please call 1300 447 548 during Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time business hours of 9am to 5pm, or send us an email at anytime.
