About us

We’ve been working at the heart of the profession since 1858. We’re here for solicitors when times get tough.


The Solicitors’ Charity has been supporting solicitors in times of need or crisis since 1858. When times are hard,

we provide financial assistance and access to emotional and practical support to help people get back on track.

We aim to make a permanent impact and positive change to the lives of the people who ask us for help.


Formerly named The Solicitors Benevolent Association and SBA we recently became The Solicitors’ Charity.
