The Queen's Badge - The Highest Award in The Boys' Brigade


Queen's Badge

The Queen's Badge is the highest award that may be gained by a member of The Boys' Brigade. It's a real opportunity; it aims to challenge and equip the individual, provide new opportunities and expand horizons while remaining accessible to young people of all abilities.

A young person wishing to work towards their Queen's Badge must first have completed their President's Badge. The Queen's Badge offers the chance to engage with the local community, take on responsibility, set personal goals, build self confidence and experience a sense of achievement.

What are the requirements?

In order to achieve the Queen's Badge a young person must complete the following activities:

  • Hold the President's Badge
  • Attend a Candidate's Meeting
  • Participate in skills-based training
  • Take responsibility within the BB or Church
  • Provide voluntary service or support to others outside the BB or Church
  • Develop Interests (Skills, Physical, Expedition)
  • Participate in a Completion Residential
  • Record Activity

Queen's Badge Record Book

What is the Queen's Badge Record Book?

The Queen's Badge Record Book is essential to get going on working towards the Queen's Badge. Upon completion of the President's Badge the Queen's Badge can be started and a Record Book will be sent out, which will . . .

  • advise on what needs to be done
  • give practical advice and guidance on how to do it
  • help to record what is acheived

What support is available?

There are several people who will play a role in supporting young people working towards their Queen's Badge. These include a Company Mentor (an individual leader in the Company who is there to support and encourage on a weekly basis), a Queen's Badge Advisor (someone from the Battalion/District who will help you plan and review your work - these people have a great deal of experience!), and Assessors (these are people responsible for supervising your progress and reporting on acheivement in each section of the award).
