Joining a GB group (known as a company) is a great way for your daughter to make lots of new friends and take part in exciting activities.
‘One of the GB Values is “Yes!” and this means we come from an affirming and encouraging place,’ says Ruth Gilson, National Director. ‘As we’re a Christian organisation we believe in the life that Jesus came to bring – life to the full.’
GB companies are run by fully-trained volunteer leaders, who are all DBS-checked (formerly CRB-checked) and each group has designated first aiders. All companies meet in safe environments, such as churches and schools, and are covered by insurance. GB has a social media policy leaders adhere to.
