Charlotte Forrester is a Young Leader at 2nd Penkridge Guides and is a member of the Girlguiding Advocate Panel, a group of 18 Girlguiding members aged 14 to 25 who lead the direction of Girlguiding’s advocacy and research.
Recently she has taken part in various activities as an Advocate, including being interviewed by Natasha Devon, a mental health campaigner, about Girlguiding’s new Action for Change scheme. She was also interviewed by the Global Newsroom about the results surrounding Body Confidence found in the research from our 2016 Girls’ Attitudes Survey (pictured above with a journalist and a member of the Girlguiding PR team).
Charlotte was also invited to an APPG discussion on domestic violence and online abuse in the House of Commons where she got to speak to people such as Jess Phillips MP and Laura Bates, the founder of Everyday Sexism, about how our government and society can better address the issue of online abuse.
If you’re aged 14-25 and passionate about Girlguiding and issues that affect girls and young women, then Girlguiding want to hear from you! Every summer they recruit half the panel. Please check the opportunities pages to see if they are currently recruiting.
