Celebrating 125 years of the CLCGB

Will I have fun?

Will I try new activities and challenges?
Will I be welcome?

Yes, Yes, Yes, absolutely yes and all with those of a similar age in a safe, well run environment.
All our leaders are vetted, CRB checked and follow the Anglican church ethos.

So try us out, the journey starts here: Find Your Local Group

“It feels nice to be part of a group who help each other and are friendly. It makes me feel special.” 

Maddison, aged 10.

What do the clergy think?

“I have been involved with CLCGB since 1969 and have seen how precious it was and what a difference it made in my Parish, All Saints & Martyrs Langley, which had a huge Company. It brings what young people need to young people, it gives them friendship, it gives them fellowship and fun."

Bishop Jack Nichols

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

A DofE programme is a real adventure from start to finish. There are three levels for you to complete, which lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. The best bit is - you get to choose what you do! Your programme can be full of activities and projects that get you buzzing, and along the way you’ll pick up experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

CLCGB is an Operating Authority for DofE. We can help you decide what you want to do and organise your activities and expeditions. Contact us to find out how you can get started.

What our members say...

“I would urge anyone between the ages of 14 and 24 ... to join the award scheme that will not only set you up for life with a good CV, but also equip you with essential life skills, and the opportunity to make friends.” James Sexty
