The BZS was formed in 1981 in response to Zimbabwe’s independence the year before, and in the belief that a new relationship was needed between the peoples of the two countries. It
- is a network of friends of Zimbabwe
- supports people-to-people links
- informs and educates
- promotes understanding and respect
- encourages open discussion and debate
The BZS is committed to relationships based on reciprocity and fairness and to bridging the South-North gap in wealth and power.

The BZS maintains an active network of wider contacts. It works in co-operation with organisations that work with the Zimbabwean community in the UK and concerned with Zimbabwe and Southern Africa. It supports Zimbabwean asylum seekers by providing expert advice on the local situation in Zimbabwe. The Society has established a panel of academic experts on Zimbabwe who between them have been able to assess hundreds of asylum appeals.
