Supporters and benefits

The U K Defence Forum would not be able to function without donations, subscriptions and support from a wide range of benefactor organisations, which enable it to promote dialogue and debate, and underpin research and information exchange, in an educative, non-partisan, not-for-profit and non-committed manner. We believe better informed legislators make better decisions on defence, peace and national security issues - but we never seek to tell them what those decisions should be.
We are grateful to the following whose various contributions have made the full range of our range of activities possible since our foundation in 1996

Aspire Defence, BAE Systems, Babcock, Benromach Distillery, Berwin Leighton Paisner, Boeing, Capita Symonds, Carillion, Cockburn & Cambell Wines, Dalwhinnie United Distillers, EADS, EDS, Finmeccanica, G4S Government Services, General Dynamics, Hiberna, Holdfast, HP, Johnny Walker, KBR, Lockheed Martin, MBDA, Manroy, Marshalls, Maersk, NDI, NewsDesk Media, Nexter, Northrop Grumman, PriceWaterhouse Coopers, QinetiQ, Raytheon, Rolls-Royce, Selex, Shepherd Neame, Smiths Detection, Thales, University of Warwick, Virgin Atlantic, VT Group, Worshipful Companies of Lightmongers - Armourers and Brasiers - Tinplate Workers; URS ; Young's Brewery, as well as generous private individuals.

Our supporters do not have, nor do they seek, any influence over any of our activities, which are the sole responsibility of the Director General. Views expressed in papers, in Defence Viewpoints and defenceredbox Twitter feed, and at briefings are those of their authors alone, and should not be taken as being in any way endorsed by the U K Defence Forum or its supporters.
