Girls' Brigade is a uniformed organisation. We choose to wear uniform because:
- It encourages a sense of belonging
- It promotes equality
- It sets us apart as members of a Christian organisation
Currently each section in Girls' Brigade Northern Ireland have two official uniforms - one for general company nights and a second ceremonial uniform worn on special occasions such as enrolment services. All items of uniform may be purchased from our walk in shop at GBHQ. Uniform can also be ordered from our online shop www.gbnishop.co.uk. By purchasing from GBNI you are supporting the ongoing work of the organisation.

It should be noted that what is listed under each section for uniform on these pages is the official prescribed uniform; there may be slight local variations. Parents should always check with the local leader before purchasing uniform items. Please note GB tunics and white gym slippers are no longer company night uniform for Seniors and Brigaders and should only be worn by these age groups when doing GB PE.
