The aims of UKLO are:
- To organise a Linguistics Olympiad in the UK every year.
- To select one or more teams to represent the UK in the annual International Linguistics Olympiad.
- To provide support for schools that participate in the UK events.
- To raise funds to cover these activities.
The committee members are all unpaid volunteers, and include not only academics from university linguistics departments but also some school teachers. The sponsors include professional associations, university departments, government-funded educational agencies, the British Academy, publishers and schools.
