A Unit Helper is an adult aged 18 or over, who helps out with a Unit occasionally i.e. ‘now and then’, ‘from time to time’, ‘irregularly’, ‘once in a while’ when additional help is needed e.g. at Unit meetings, holidays or camps. This includes someone who is on a parents’ rota and includes both males and females. All of our Unit Helpers must submit a signed Unit Helper Agreement Form available from your local Unit Leaders, National Office or here on this website.
Unit Helpers who attend regularly (for example to help a member with special needs) or those who attend residential events must successfully complete the full Unit Helper screening process including Garda Vetting. Details are provided in a Unit Helper Pack available from National Office.
Unit Helpers are not obliged to attend every week or take part in programme planning and other extra activities. Unit Helpers are there as a support to Leaders and girls within the Unit. They do not take on the responsibility of running meetings on their own or being left on their own with the girls.
Unit Helpers may wear an orange neckerchief but do not wear a uniform or make their Promise as they are not members of IGG. However, they do need to be in agreement with the fundamental principles of Guiding and enjoy working in partnership with girls and adults.
