‘I’ve been in GB for 10 years and I love going as I see my friends there and have fun. I’ve also been taught loads of useful skills and I probably wouldn’t have a faith if it wasn’t for GB,’ says Kirsty Plowman, 16, of Portsmouth.
Joining a GB group 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 Jules Murdy, Director. ‘As we’re a Christian organisation we believe in the life that Jesus came to bring – life to the full.’
GB groups are run by fully-trained volunteer leaders, who are all DBS-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.
Each GB group charges a weekly, monthly or termly amount to cover the cost of activities and refreshments and this amount varies. Companies often offer a discount if more than one girl attends from the same family.
There is also an annual membership fee, which gets paid to GB’s Support Centre, and covers the cost of administration and programme development.
