About The National Gamekeepers Organisation

The National Gamekeepers’ Organisation is the representative body for gamekeeping, run by gamekeepers. The NGO is NOT just for gamekeepers but we support all shooters.

  • The NGO is run by a National Committee consisting of NGO Regional Chairmen, all of them gamekeepers elected by their local NGO members.
  • Our Main Office is based in county Durham and has three staff handling our database of 13,000 members, a mail order shop and all our other office back up.
  • We have two Development Officers, North and South, who assist our voluntary regional groups, organise events for members, liaise with NGO sponsors and meet the public at shows.
  • Each area has an NGO Regional Group, formed of volunteers, gamekeepers and supporters, who help the NGO in their area. The chairman of the group is always a gamekeeper and has a seat on the NGO National Committee.
  • Members can opt in to the NGO Moorland Branch and/or the NGO Deer Branch to be kept informed of our specialist work in those two areas, each driven by its own informed, grass roots committee. There is more information on these branches in the NGO Members Only area of this website.
  • We also retain several consultants who help us with political lobbying, public relations, firearms advice and the production of Keeping the Balance, the NGO members’ magazine.
  • To join the NGO costs just £45 per year
