Our two programmes:


Programmes challenge and nurture girls with diverse experiences balanced across key domains:


In Girls' Brigade companies the domains are:

Physical, Social, Educational, and Spiritual


In IFG Units the domains are:

Spiritual, Physical, Adventure, Community Service, and Interest.


Girls gain badges and awards that value their involvement, achievements, and skills.


These awards recognise individual growth in a culture that shares ideals, offers personal support, and nurtures acceptance of diversity and ability.


The ultimate recognition is the internationally valued Queen's Award.
