All Different, All Equal – Diversity toolkit


The WAGGGS and WOSM European Regions have released a Diversity Toolkit

The information and training resources in this toolkit can be used and adapted by all levels of the movement.
National Board members may find the Diversity Checklist useful for reviewing the organizational structure and policies of the Association. The templates and practical approaches provided in the toolkit may be helpful in planning initiatives to introduce Guiding and Scouting to new and unexplored areas of your community.

Mentoring in Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting in a Nutshell

ltee 1

This toolbox was developed by associations in four selected countries: the Latvijas Skautu un Gaidu centrala organizacija – Latvia, Sojuz na Izvidnici na Makedonia  – FYRO Macedonia, Slovensky Skauting – Slovakia and the Association of Ukrainian Guides. The participants worked to produce tools in response to their own needs but also for wider use in Scouting and Guiding. A selection of materials has been added to make the tools easy to use and to raise awareness of organisational and leadership development.

Child Protection Tool Kit

A toolkit developed by Europe Region WAGGGS and the European Scout Region on the topic of Child Protection. This toolkit aims at assisting NSOs and MOs to develop a policy for child protection and gives practical information as well as sample forms.

How To Use Research to Enhance Guiding and Scouting


This tool kit aims to offer limited scientific background of research for two reasons. First of all, knowing the terminology enables Member Organizations to:

1. understand better the various pieces of research available
2. identify the information they need, as most of the terms offered can be used as key search words3. go deeper behind the outcomes and follow the research done by external researchers.Secondly, the scientific framework enlarges the possibilities for research and can benefit national associations as a source for ideas and tools. Theories and hypotheses can be easily transformed into stepping stones for the Association.


Guidelines on Partnership


Guidelines on developing and maintaining partnerships in Guiding and Scouting produced by the Europe Region WAGGGS and the European Scout Region. Different forms of partnership are an actively used method in Guiding and Scouting Associations around Europe.

Beyond Barriers Tool Kit


Toolkit to assist Associations in providing Guiding and Scouting for young people with special needs.

At the end of the “Beyond Barriers” seminar the participants felt that they lacked ways of supporting leaders, who work with members with disabilities. To address this issue, participants gave a recommendation to the Europe Region WAGGGS and European Scout Region to initiate a one-year project in 2003 in order to find good practice and to produce training material to be used in all National Member Organisations.
