Britain has many members and several Subud houses. One of these, the Amadeus Centre in London, operates as a commercial enterprise, generating significant funds for the national organisation as well as hosting a group.
Subud Britain has a well-developed organizational structure with regions, regional helpers and regional chairs, who also act as trustees on the national board. Financially it is a big contributor to both the zone and to the WSA.
Wings activity is well represented, and the very popular Subud Youth Families Association has enriched the lives of many Subud families with young children both within the UK and the Zonally.
France has a strong organisation, and has maintained a strong and steady development in recent years. This new body makes decisions in between national congresses, with the assistance of National Helpers.
Several smaller groups Nice, Montpellier, Toulouse and Versailles are linked to the main ones, and new smaller groups seem to be a developing trend. Ireland has a scattered membership similar to Italy, but they are willing to frequently travel long distances to meet for latihan and social activities. Enterprise support has traditionally been strong here. Italy has a small but persistent and dedicated membership. They are widely scattered with isolated members and small groups.
Regular meetings are arranged in the one self-owned Subud house in Florence. This was originally financed partially through a concerted effort throughout the zone, and hopefully is now beginning to yield a very welcome rental income for the national organisation.
The Netherlands is a well organized Subud country, with a national committee, a national helpers team, two self-owned Subud houses, a healthy financial position, and the oldest uninterrupted national publication in the world, Subud News Netherlands.
Membership has been stable for many years and, like other countries has an average age moving slowly to the grey area. Apart from a small group in Porto and some isolated members, Subud Portugal is concentrated in Lisbon.
