Welcome to the Network of Buddhist Organisations (UK) web site. We exist to support UK Buddhist organisations and their members. We are a national umbrella organisation for UK Buddhism and were founded in 1993.
Becoming a member of the NBO is a declaration of your confidence in the values promoted by Buddhism. As a member, you’ll be at the heart of our activities and campaigns, whether for a high quality and inclusive education system, action to help the environment, human rights and fairness, or a dynamic and flourishing exchange of ideas with others inspired by the path of awakening.
There are over 1,000 Buddhist groups in the UK, from a huge diversity of traditions both ancient and modern. Check our Members page for some; you’ll find there is a link to many UK Buddhist groups that we know about, whether they are NBO members or not.
The NBO actively promotes and supports a number of current UK-wide Buddhist projects and campaigns, including the annual ‘Buddhist Action Day’ and Buddhist student societies across the UK. Check our Projects and Campaigns page for the latest.
