What Makes the UKSN Special?

  • The UKSN is community led organisation, primarily run by volunteers.
  • Any profits generated from membership are reinvested, further enhancing the UKSN community, its goals and projects.
  • The UKSN has a fully formed constitution and code of conduct. We also have both anti bullying and child protection policies in place that we expect all members to adhere to at all times. These core documents form the backbone of UKSN, ensuring that our community remains a safe environment for all members.
  • The TRIBE Team hold Advance DBS certificates for your complete piece of mind. We also run checks on any volunteer that may 'work' with children at officially organised events or camps.    

  • We hold a radio licence from OFCOM that allows members to communicate, without requiring a personal licence.

  • The UKSN is one of a small number of organisations to hold a Camping and Caravan Exemption Certificate in England, Scotland and Wales. This enables us to operate campsites for sole use by our members. It additionally grants us permission to Issue certificates to sites allowing them to operate under UKSN's guidance without needing planning permission or to apply for change of use for the land.    

  • The UKSN has a Small Society Lottery Licence allowing us to legally hold raffles and lotteries.

  • We operate P1AN – the official store of the UKSN which sells a range of UKSN merchandise, personalised gifts, and other related goodies! The store even helps contribute to the UKSN's overall operating costs, so don't forget to visit regularly.      

  • UKSN is both a trademark and a trading name of a registered LIMITED Company. This allows us to comply with relevant law and ensure we pay tax on anything we owe. Although technically LTD, UKSN operates like a community organisation.

  •  The UKSN is proudly based in the United Kingdom.
