The Barristers’ Benevolent Association exists to support, help and comfort those members of the Bar in England and Wales and their families and dependants who are in need, in distress or in difficulties. During the recent past we have helped barristers and their families in every circuit, often saving not only dignity but careers.
We are not nearly as well-known in the profession as we would like, and there are possibly people who qualify for our help but aren’t aware of our existence… we also feel that there are other people who would be willing to contribute to the welfare of their less fortunate colleagues but who are also unaware of us.
Please do not hesitate to bring potential cases to our attention and remember us when things are going well and you can afford to make a gift.
