Introduction

The BBA exists to support, help and comfort those members of the Bar in England and Wales and their 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. Our staff are experienced, kind and practical; our Association is a last safety net for those struck down, their partners and their children, where there is no income, capital or family back up. 

We are a charity and rely on fundraising and donations from Chambers and individual barristers so please consider supporting us if you can.  We believe that almost every member of the practicing Bar can afford to donate at least a sum equivalent to one hour of their charging rate without feeling a real difference. If you agree please please support us by clicking on the JustGiving button opposite or by contacting Susan or Nicky through the 'Contact us' page of our website.


Help us help people like you

Most of our clients, for obvious reasons, prefer to remain anonymous. That's why your donation is so important, you could be helping a colleague, friend or their dependants get the financial or emotional support they need and although hopefully you will never need us yourself if the worst was to happen we will be there to help you and your family through any difficulties you may have.
