The British Association For Shooting & Conservation [BASC]

The British Association For Shooting & Conservation [BASC]

Our mission is to promote and protect sporting shooting and the well-being of the countryside throughout the United Kingdom and overseas. We represent our members' interests by providing a voice for sporting shooting which includes wildfowling, game, and rough shooting, deer stalking, target shooting and air gunning, pigeon shooting and pest control, gun dogs, promoting practical habitat conservation, training and the setting of standards and undertaking appropriate research.

BASC is a national representative body for sporting shooting. We have five strategic objectives:
  • A strong and unified voice for shooting
  • All party backing for shooting
  • Balanced comment in the media
  • Continued opportunity to go shooting
  • High standards
The organisation is run by a democratically elected council of members. The council is charged with overseeing the management of the affairs of a growing, multi million-pound turnover organisation, which has very public responsibilities. In practice, the Council, as a body, delegates day-to-day running of the Association to the chief executive. This does not, however, detract from the Council's overall responsibility.

The organisation’s patron is the Duke of Edinburgh. There is also a president, chairman, council and a chief executive.

The following departments are based at head office: firearms, gamekeeping and game shooting, media and communications, deer, research, conservation and land management, biodiversity, marketing, fundraising, wildfowling, membership and shooting standards and training.

These are overseen by directors and heads of department.

The regional offices are headed up by directors who oversee regional officers and administrative staff.
