We now know that the subscription for 2023 will be £38.50 per member plus any small amount added by districts or division. Our county, Somerset North, have decided not to charge anything this year and will provide a refund of £3.50 per member to offset some of the overall increase.
With this increase, and increases in rent and materials, it’s really important that you set out a budget to make sure your unit subscriptions cover all of your planned costs. There’s more information about budgeting on the Girlguiding website:
If you have concerns about being able to afford subscriptions or other costs, please talk to your district commissioner as soon as possible.
We plan to discuss budgeting as part of our next air and share session on Tuesday 13th September (online).
