Officers of The Association

As a registered charity, The BBA is governed by a Board of Trustees – a group of volunteers who lend their professional experience to oversee the organisation.

While day-to-day management is delegated to the staff team, the Trustees are ultimately responsible for the finances and direction of the charity.

Support us via JustGiving

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.

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 any real difference. If you agree please support us by clicking on the JustGiving button opposite or by contacting Susan or Nicky through our contact page.
