sba the solicitors' charity

No solicitor unsupported in times of need or crisis

SBA The Solicitors’ Charity has been working at the heart of the legal profession for over 150 years.  It is dedicated to helping solicitors both past and present, and their families, who are in serious financial need.

SBA typically supports those who do not have the resources to pay for the normal things in life which most people take for granted. We can provide grants and interest-free loans (usually secured), support with career transition and access to bespoke personal insolvency advice.
