Young Person Awards


We are very proud of our young members and have a number of awards at county and region level for our young members to recognise exceptional achievements.

Essex North East Young Persons Award


This is for girls aged up to 18 who have shown exceptional initiative, bravery or courage in either pain or adversity or a notable display of commitment to their Guiding Promise. Click here for the nomination form for this award.

Anglia Buddy and Unit Buddy Award


Anglia Region Buddy Award is designed to recognise young women in guiding who act as buddies, supporting their peers with special needs within units, at events or on camps and holidays. The Buddy Award is for young women who enable other members with a wide range of special needs to access all the amazing opportunities on offer to them.

The Unit Buddy Award recognises the units which contain girls and young women who regularly help and support members with additional needs in those units each week during their meetings.
Their support enables our members with additional needs to experience the amazing opportunities offered within Guiding and be included in unit activities.

To nominate someone for either of the Girlguiding Anglia Buddy Award they need to meet the following criteria:
• Be aged 18 and under and a member of Girlguiding Anglia.
• Have worked as a Buddy to support a member or members with additional needs for at least 25 hours. This must usually be on at least three separate occasions.

The nomination should be made by a Unit Leader and, where possible, supported in some way by the young member(s) or their representative e.g. parent of member being supported.

Anglia Youth Award


For members under the age of 18 who have shown notable commitment or participation, made a notable difference to others, have empowered or influenced or demonstrated championing of the rights of young women.
