About LSW

London South West is one of our Region’s smallest but fastest growing Counties so we’re especially proud to offer fantastic opportunities for all our girls and leaders both in every day Guiding and all the way up to International level.

Our units of Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Senior Section cover a wide area of SW London and area grouped into 8 Districts.

Our districts cover the major part of SW London and are as follows

Balham and Tooting
Central Wandsworth
Clapham and Clapham Park
Lambeth North
Lambeth South

For more info on each Section see the links to the left. Each District can have any number of members in each section. The District is managed and looked after by a District Commissioner who can be supported by a District Secretary or a District Accountant. At County level are our “Advisors” of all areas  for leaders to go to for specialist advice – training / outdoor / etc and managing Girlguiding London SW is our County Commissioner, Tora Shand.

Our County not only supports all our units in their  normal termly programmes, but we have a wide range of activity days and large scale overnight and camping events including international trips. Over the last few years we’ve run “Lark in the Dark”- a 1 night camp for Brownies at Cudham Campsite, “Go for Gold”, a weekend camp for Guides and Senior Section with older Brownies coming for 1 night, again at Cudham and we are currently planning a local county based sleepover for Brownies. We have had international trips to Romania and Croatia and have had members participating in trips around the world. Closer to home we have a very popular Brownie Boating Day and there are more fun trips and days planned! For more info see our “News and Events” along the top toolbar.
