The main reason the Association was formed over a century ago was “……Above all, the subscriptions, which even if limited to 6d a month per member, would form the nucleus of a Benevolent Fund, which is much needed, by means of which help can be given in deserving cases.”

Today, the UK Branch of the Association continues this benevolent work through its Almoner Service and the BSAP Trust, a registered charity. Since its inception the Trust has disbursed grants totalling thousands of pounds to members of the UK Branch. For more information on the Trusts and Trustees please click here.
