Girls’ Brigade

In England and Wales, The Girls’ Brigade works with churches and schools to develop tailored outreach groups which enable children and young people to discover life to the full through rewarding, stretching and positive opportunities.

These sustainable local groups are for 4-8s, 7-11s, 10-14s, and 13-18s primarily, but not exclusively, for girls, helping them grow and develop in confidence and skills.

Around 12,000 children and young people attend these weekly groups, after school or lunchtime clubs, in safe and friendly Christian environments, where they can have fun and take part in a range of activities from craft and games, to camping, cooking or fundraising.

GB members can take part in young leader training, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and GB’s International Queen’s Award scheme, outreach events and action to benefit their local community, and attend residentials and youth festivals.
