tan uggs banned from Brownies because she has learning difficulties
‘Out of order’: Kacey’s mother Donna believes that her daughter’s exclusion from Girl Guides is discrimination
But the family later received a call saying she could not attend future meetings.
Mrs Godfrey said: ‘I was getting Kacey ready for Brownies last week when I received a very abrupt phone call from Julie Nye [Girlguiding UKs South East Essex County Commissioner].
She told me Kacey would not be allowed to come any more due to health and safety concerns and told me to return her uniform immediately.’
The mother of four, whose husband is an area team leader for a home shopping business, added: ‘Kacey still wants to go and doesnt understand why they wont let her be with her friends.
‘Theyve told me they want to talk to the school about her learning disabilities but why does she have to be banned from meetings in the meantime?’
She said: ‘I wish Id never told them about Kaceys learning difficulties now.
‘They are making out she has been kicking people in the shins but Kacey would never do anything like that.
‘We have never had a problem with Kacey before.’
Girlguiding UK formerly the Girl Guides Association is the largest voluntary organisation for girls and young women in the UK, with more than 500,000 members.
In its national pledge, leaders must ensure ‘all reasonable steps for the inclusion of disabled girls, young women and adults into guiding are taken’.
Young members are also encouraged to train for a disability awareness badge.
A Girlguiding UK spokesman said yesterday that the organisation was ‘in discussion with Kaceys family to resolve this situation’, adding that the problem had been caused by a lack of information on Kacey ahead of her joining.
