Our Mission

The Anglo-Jordanian Society was founded in 1981 on the initiative of HRH Prince El Hassan bin Talal and today has well over 400 members.

Its objectives are to promote friendship and understanding between the people of the two countries, as well as to increase public knowledge in the UK of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, its history, geography, economy and culture.  Whilst offering a focal point for meetings between individuals from both countries for business, pleasure and charitable activities, the AJS also aims to provide relief from need, hardship and distress in Jordan and, in exceptional circumstances in association with Jordanian charitable societies, in the countries of the wider Levant.

About anglo jordanian society

To this end the Society organises a number of events throughout the year including meetings and lectures, cultural events such as film screenings and private viewings, power breakfasts and social gatherings, as well as a biennial dinner attended by its patrons, HRH Prince El Hassan bin Talal, HRH Princess Sarvath and HRH the Duke of Kent. Proceeds from all these events are donated to charitable causes.

In recent years the AJS has contributed over £180,000 to such causes and at this time of well-documented political and humanitarian uncertainty and suffering in the region, is committed to continue to invest in the well-being of thousands of adults and children, particularly in the less headline grabbing areas such as mental health and disability.
