Our work with children and young people is made possible thanks to our volunteer leaders who give of their time so generously, who undertake a disclosure (criminal records) check as part of their registration with The Boys’ Brigade, and are trained to provide a safe and caring environment for all children.
Our Company started out in 1979 at Holy Redeemer Church for boys only but we now provide these opportunities for both boys and girls. We take part in the life of the Church and are a valued and important part of our Church’s outreach programme.
Whilst most of our activities take place within our own Company we are proud to be part of the much bigger regional, national and worldwide Boys’ Brigade organisation.
1st Acomb (York) Company is part of the Yorkshire County Battalion which, in turn, is part of the Yorkshire and Humberside District. There are 10 companies in our Battalion reaching from Scarborough to Harrogate and south to Doncaster.

We also share a link with the 1st Begoro Company in Ghana. We first connected over fifteen years ago through our Company and Senior sections.
