The Removers Benevolent Association (RBA) is the only dedicated charity for the removals & storage industry. Established in 1900, the charity was set up to provide financial relief for necessitous persons (including their widows and dependents) who are, or have been, engaged continuously for a minimum period of one year by any Member of the British Association of Removers Ltd (BAR).

Make a Donation

The RBA charity heavily relies on donations, fundraising events and investments in order to continue to do its work and provide the support for those people in need.   Any donations are gratefully received. Thank you for your generosity!

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, please remember to apply Gift Aid as this will increase your donation by at least 25% at no extra cost.

Apply for a Grant

If you know of anyone that may be in need of temporary financial assistance as a result of illness (of themselves or a dependent) or any other legitimate reason, then, as a BAR Member, you may apply for a grant on their behalf by completing a simple RBA application form.  Every case is considered on its own merits and treated in the strictest confidence at all times.


…I would just like to say thank you, although that word simply does not even begin to cover how we feel.  This was the best Xmas present we could have asked for, as it makes life a lot easier until ‘S’ is able to return to work.’

Mrs D. Lincolnshire

We contacted the RBA to ask if [employee] could be given any assistance. Within a week of filling out the application, we received a cheque.  I would like to thank you for the quick, efficient and worthwhile work that you do.
