Fancy getting involved? There are many ways to join in with all that Girls’ Brigade (GB) is doing.
GB has more than 600 groups around the country and these are open to children and young people, primarily girls, aged 4 plus. Why not find out more and locate a group near you?
More than 3,500 adults in England and Wales give their time and gifts as part of the leadership team of GB. Find out how YOU could be the key to lives in your community being transformed.
New GB is developed by local GB teams (with support from GB’s national support centre and network of mission enablers). GB teams are groups of people who are passionate about seeing children and young people’s lives and communities transformed and enriched. They provide groups and activities for different ages, in different settings and in different styles; depending upon the needs of the local area.

In October 2015, Girls' Brigade Ministries hosted the first ever 'UK Girl Gathering' in order to prompt a conversation about raising hope for girls. Inspirational change-makers from around the UK were invited to meet together, and a group of 40 CEOs, ministers, youth activists and advisers used this opportunity to share their hope for girls. It was a collaborative time of dreaming, hoping and looking forward - resulting in the production of what we've called The Manifesto. Now we’re encouraging others to join the UK Girl conversation too.
On Wednesday, Girlguiding released its annual Girls’ Attitudes survey. The biggest survey of its kind in the UK, it asked the opinions of just under 2,000 girls and young women aged 7 to 21 (not just members of Girlguiding). As it gives us an insight about how girls feel about a range of issues, emerging pressures and what they need to support their happiness, wellbeing and opportunities in life, it’s important that we listen to their voices.
