COVID-19 Emergency Appeal

A COVID-19 Emergency Fund Appeal has been launched on behalf of the Barristers' Benevolent Association (BBA) and the four Inns of Court for members of the Bar adversely affected by Covid-19 and the closure of the courts.

The aim of this appeal is to help those members who have contracted the corona virus and are unable to support themselves and their families as well as those many members of the Bar, particularly but not exclusively, those who do publicly funded work, who now find themselves in an extraordinarily difficult position through no fault of their own. For example, the closure of the criminal courts has resulted in the stopping of work for many criminal barristers. We regret that the effects are already being felt by many at the Bar, and the need is urgent.

Donations can be made directly to the BBA, via the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) or Just Giving.

Your donation could make a very real difference.
