More in Common badge relaunch


We are relaunching our More in Common badge in conjunction with Birmingham Girl Guiding and the Jo Cox Foundation.

The ethos of the badge is to encourage Scouts and Guides to show compassion, kindness and friendship to others, and to reach out across our diverse communities.

There are 13 activities to choose from to gain the badge –

  • Squirrels, Beavers and Rainbows complete 2 activities
  • Cubs and Brownies complete 3
  • Scouts and Guides complete 4
  • Explorers and Rangers complete 5

We have now awarded 983 badges so we are 17 away from awarding our 1000th badge!

Can order badges free of charge from Dr Peter Rookes at, 077033 36088 giving the name of the group, the address for sending the badges, and some of the activities that have been carried out.
