The British-Slovene Society is a registered charity founded in 1993 and is constituted as a company limited by guarantee.
It is governed by a Board of Trustees. The first Chairman was Keith Miles, who was made a member of the Order of the British Empire (O.B.E.) for services to British-Slovene relations. The present Chairman is David Lloyd, a former British Ambassador to Slovenia.
The British-Slovene Society facilitates contacts between Slovenes in the United Kingdom and their friends in this country. It promotes knowledge about Slovenia in the UK and promotes cultural, educational and other relations between the two countries.
It organises a wide range of events, including an annual dinner, a summer picnic, lunches, a carol service, concerts and talks about Slovenia.
It maintains contacts with The British Slovenia All Party Group in Parliament.
The Society supports Skupnost Barka, a community of people with special needs in Slovenia.
