If you’d like to join the NBO you can do so online using our Membership Signup page. This will guide you through process, including applying by post if necessary.
Membership is open to all UK Buddhist groups and individuals who share the NBO’s three aims:
a) To promote fellowship and dialogue between Buddhist organisations
b) To facilitate co-operation between Buddhists in matters of common interest
c) To work in harmony with Buddhist and other like minded organisations
Becoming a member of the NBO is a declaration of your confidence in the values promoted by Buddhism.
In order to give voice to Buddhist ideas and practices in education, to create a flourishing Buddhist community, to work with other faiths, the media and government, we need the backing of as many people as possible.
As a member of the NBO, you’ll be at the heart of our activities and campaigns, whether for a high-quality and inclusive education system, action for the environment, human rights, or a dynamic and flourishing exchange of ideas with others inspired by the path of awakening.
Unlike other UK faiths, Buddhism has no recognised media channels or outlets, no broad web news channels, no newspapers, no radio or TV stations and little or no representation in governmental, interfaith, educational and other civic organisations. Buddhism has little visibility, little sense of community, and virtually no voice. You can help to change this.
The NBO receives no funding from government or outside bodies and employs no paid staff. Our administration is wholly supported by our members, for the benefit of all UK Buddhists, whether NBO members or not.
Join the NBO and help keep Buddhism on the UK map.
New members must agree to our aims and code of conduct here.
