Purpose/focus Fraternal benefit society

The United Ancient Order of Druids (UAOD) was an English fraternal benefit society, founded in 1833 by subordinate lodges of the Ancient Order of Druids who sought to expand the role of the order and register as a government-approved "friendly society". The U.A.O.D. quickly expanded to include branches in North America and Australia, as well as mainland Europe; some of these branches continue to operate independently today, if only as insurance providers.
