SAGGA is a national organisation whose members can also opt to be part of a SAGGA Group. Some Groups are based on a geographical region while others include members who share a common interest (for example a group of SSAGO graduates). Each Group elects a Representative to be the link between group members and the SAGGA Committee. The Representative is also responsible for adding Group activities to the SAGGA programme which is published in ‘News and Ideas’ and on the SAGGA website. Group activities are open to all SAGGA members and should support SAGGA’s aims and objectives.

A group of Scouts and Guides who have graduated university. Unfortunately with crippling debt, low income and high house prices they have seeked a more nomadic way of living. This nomadic way of living has manifested itself as turning up to various Scout and Guide campsites and staying for exchange of site services. Leaving in their wake a sea of tidy grass areas, reduced state of littering and freshly painted buildings.
