The British National Socialist Movement (which is also sometimes called the British Movement) is a white supremacist group that originated in 1968.

The Government is committed to tackling Right Wing Extremism (including white supremacist and neo-Nazi activity). This includes undertaking assessments of Right Wing Extremist activity by the Counter Extremism Insight and Analysis unit.

The Building a Stronger Britain Together (BSBT) programme brings people across England and Wales to tackle extremism at local level. Since the programme’s launch in 2016 it has supported over 240 civil society organisations.
