AUGB Annual General Meeting in Huddersfield 2021


The Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB) is the largest representative body for Ukrainians and those of Ukrainian descent in the UK. It exists to develop, promote and support the interests of the Ukrainian community in the UK.

Founded in 1946

  • Our Association was founded in 1946 by Ukrainians who came to Great Britain at the end of the Second World War
  • We operate a network of local AUGB branches, most of them with their own social/cultural centres across the UK
  • At local level, we support Ukrainian Community Schools, Day Centres and a range of cultural and social activities
  • We have a highly respected Shevchenko Library & Archive in London. Since our inception we have published a large number of books, periodicals & newspapers
  • We work closely with other community organisations, including the Association of Ukrainian Women, the Association of Ukrainian Teachers and youth organisations. We have a good working relationship with the Embassy of Ukraine in the United Kingdom
  • Internationally, the AUGB is a member of the Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) and the European Congress of Ukrainians (EKY), and over the years has worked with various organisations in Ukraine, including governmental and academic institutions
