We believe making a difference starts with talking to our young people - that’s why we put intergenerational work high on our agenda. Serving communities is at the heart of everything we do, and that includes addressing the social issues of loneliness and homelessness. For these reasons we are proud to sponsor Social Bite’s Wee Sleep Out in its second year.

All girls and young women are welcome at Girls' Brigade no matter who they are or where they come from. Our members come from diverse backgrounds and from all faiths or none but what is important is that each girl is unique and has the opportunity to learn, make friends, try new challenges and grow into strong confident young women during their GB experience. Service to Church and Community are at the heart of all we do and that is why we are delighted to support the Wee Sleep Out in its second year.
