Engaging with Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) and campaign groups

Our engagement with NGOs and local campaign groups has enabled us to have honest, open and constructive dialogues resulting in improved levels of trust.

We have strengthened governance of the ONR NGO Forum meetings by refreshing and publishing new Terms of Reference, welcoming new members, increasing our programme of face-to-face activities and putting in place more collaborative co-chair arrangements. We are always keen to widen the membership, so if you are a local/national campaign group who would like to part of the forum, please contact us.

Outside of formal meetings with NGOs, our webinar programme, regular correspondence, news updates and bespoke meetings have all enhanced our engagement and made us more accessible. This has all helped build trust, confidence and understanding and we will continue to explore how and when we remain engaged with stakeholders.

NGO Forum

The ONR NGO Forum was established to promote debate and dialogue between ONR and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) who have a specific interest in matters relating to nuclear safety, security, safeguards, and the environment (where matters fall within our regulatory responsibilities).

The Forum meets regularly throughout the year both virtually and face to face and welcomes NGO representatives from across the UK.

If you represent a group and would like to find out more about the Forum and how to get involved, please email
