Partners and affiliations

The Order is proud to partner with other organizations who share our aims.

Samara's Aid Appeal

In order to be more effective in getting aid to communities in the Middle East, we have partnered with Samara's Aid Appeal, which started in 2014 and has quickly grown into a large humanitarian aid project. By September 2017, Samara's Aid Appeal had sent more than 80 consignments (artic lorries and containers) carrying clothes, shoes, bedding, toiletries/hygiene items, essential medical equipment, ambulances and school equipment. Much of the aid goes to people in need of humanitarian relief that other aid agencies have missed, or who are scattered across areas where they cannot access help themselves.

The UK Brigade of Kentucky Colonels

We work in partnership with the UK Brigade of Kentucky Colonels, the association for British and UK resident holders of a Commission as a Kentucky Colonel granted by the Governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

The award of a Kentucky Colonelcy, which is made to both gentlemen and ladies, is the highest that can be bestowed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. It is given to people who have made a positive contribution to their community. The Kentucky Colonels is a philanthropic organizations whose members also undertake to be goodwill ambassadors for the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Many members of the Order of St. George, both in the UK and the United States, are Kentucky Colonels and so use the honorific 'Colonel' in their title. However, for the avoidance of misunderstanding, it should be pointed out this use of the title 'Colonel' should never be taken to imply that the holder has the military rank of Colonel in the US or other armed forces.

The Royal Society of St.George

The Order of St. George is affiliated to the Royal Society of St George, England’s premier patriotic organization, promoting and celebrating the English way of life. Queen Victoria was the Society’s first Royal Patron and the Society has since enjoyed the Patronage of every reigning monarch.

The Royal Society also actively campaigns for St. George’s flag to be flown prominently throughout England, and one of the Society’s long-running campaigns is to have 23 April – St. George’s Day – declared a public holiday in England.

The Order's Invicta Encampment works alongside the very active North Downs Branch of the Royal Society of St. George. A particular theme is commemorating the Battle of Britain, which was largely fought in the skies over Kent. We have supported events at the Battle of Britain memorial at Capel Le Ferne and have been delighted to welcome the wonderful young people of the Air Cadets to ceremonies at the war memorial in East Malling.

The Order's UN NGO status
Since 2015 the Order of St. George has been officially recognized as a Non-governmental organization (NGO), with special consultative status, by the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
