The Belvedere Benevolent Association (BBA) provides an essential support service to members of the college community that are experiencing a variety of difficulties in their lives. 

Operating confidentially, the BBA grants financial assistance and puts in place professional support services for Belvederians and their families that are suffering hardship. However, the group is also very often simply a reliable source of advice and direction to Belvederians that find themselves in challenging circumstances, requiring effective guidance and support.

The aim of the BBA is to be as responsive as possible to the needs of all past pupils who request or require assistance. All requests are managed with utmost sensitivity and dealt with in complete confidence.

Given the scale of current cases, as well as the many new cases the committee anticipates into the future, fundraising is crucial to sustain the services of the BBA. The BBA, therefore, appeals to you to consider donating through the link available below. A standing order can also be set up through BBA Treasurer, Denis Houston, whose contact details can also be found at the bottom of this page. 

Chaired by the President Elect of the Belvedere College Union and supported by a committee of past pupils spanning several decades, the BBA is a charitable, non-profit organisation which relies solely on the contributions of past pupils and other fundraising activities. The BBA is registered with the Charities Regulator.
