Important Covid-19 Updates for GB leaders and members

Last updated 20th October 2020

Our 2020-2021 session officially began at our AGM on October 2nd. The National Board had developed guidelines to support our volunteer leaders to re-open GB safely for the new session. These were circulated to all GB Captains, who worked hard to plan for the new session.

As the whole country returns to Level 5 restrictions this week, the National Board have agreed that no face-to-face Girls’ Brigade activities should take place for the next six weeks. Further guidance will be issued to Captains as restrictions are lifted.

Each Company is taking a slightly different approach, depending on their local situation. Some are meeting online, others are sending out activity packs for girls to complete at home, while some have paused all activities completely for a few weeks.

We thank our members, parents, guardians and leaders for their patience and support as we all learn together how to operate in a safe way.
