Tasmania Lones operate Units to cater for girls and young
women of all ages who are unable to participate in Unit meetings due to
distance, illness or other commitments.
Lone Guides are the same as other Guides in that they are a member of a
Unit which follows the Australian Guide Program. It is the way Lones
communicate and undertake activities that is different. Unit
communication may take the form of paper correspondence, internet
communication or a mixture of medias.
Who can Join Lone Guides?
Girls who don’t face a distance challenge, may also join Lones. These
girls typically face their own challenges: a heavy study workload at
school or college, Guide meetings where they live clash with another
important commitment, they are sick and/or often in hospital, they
belong to a group of itinerant workers (daughters of fruitpickers or
show people for example) or they are the only Guide in their group
in that age-group.
