Cover of the Healthy Unit ProgrammesIn 2019 CGI were awarded the Gold Standard of the Health Quality Mark. The Health Quality Mark aims to promote quality youth health promoting practice, which in turn promotes healthy and supportive environments for all our members and staff.

To keep our Health Quality Mark, we need to ensure that we give every member of CGI the opportunity to take part in Health Promoting activities and we are launching the CGI Healthy Unit Programme in 2020.


1. Each Cygnet, Brigin, Guide, Ranger and adult in the Unit to do two activities from each of the Health Promoting Suggestions (see opposite page)

2. Each Company to complete one activity from the Health Section of the CHOICES Programme.

3. Complete one of the following:

• GAB - Guides Against Bullying Programme
