NORM-UK was founded in 1994 by English physician Dr. John Warren. The original aim was to provide information about non-surgical male foreskin restoration. The organization quickly expanded its mission to provide information about all aspects of health related to the foreskin, penis, and human genitals.
NORM-UK is independent of any other organization and regulated by the Charity Commission for England and Wales. It is registered with charity number 1072831 and with the stated objective "To advance the education of the public in all matters relating to circumcision and other forms of surgical alteration of the genitals including alternative treatments and offering information and advice on such matters."
Female circumcision, or female genital mutilation, which is illegal to perform on women in the United Kingdom, is also a concern of NORM-UK.
NORM-UK publishes a quarterly journal, NORM NEWS: The Journal of NORM-UK. The charity also publish a number of pamphlets including Care of the Intact Infant Penis, Phimosis, Foreskin Tightness, and Alternatives to Circumcision. NORM-UK's Dr. Peter Ball also produced the video and DVD Restoration in Focus.
NORM-UK recently changed its name to 15 Square (a reference to the area, in inches, of an adult foreskin).
