You can use our free, 24-hour helpline for more information and find out whether you are eligible.
Girlguiding has been popular with children and young women aged 5-26 for over a hundred years. There are currently more than 500,000 individuals taking part in fulfilling and exciting activities on a weekly basis. These activities, which range from performing arts, travel and adventure sports, are not usually dangerous – but any breach of health of safety standards can cause serious injuries. You could make a no-win, no-fee claim with us if you or your child was struck on the head by falling debris or material or if you tripped over a surface that was not safe.
Even if the intentions of the third party were honest, it is their fault if a child is injured due to their negligence. You have every right to seek compensation in the form of a monetary package to compensate for the costs of the injuries you sustained. This money can go towards covering medical bills, or if you a young working woman it can also cover lost income if your ability to earn a living has been hampered. You should not feel guilty about going ahead with a claim. The Girlguiding Association will have insurance policies to cover such accidents. It is also likely that you will get the money quicker as they are a national organisation.
The thousands of volunteers and supervisors at Girlguiding have a duty of care to protect the children and young women present. They should carry out hazard checks and plan for all eventualities, including the possibility of weather changes and the maintenance of any supplied equipment. They are liable for compensation if any of their decisions directly affected you or your child and caused a serious accident.
