BA Giving is the charitable arm of the British Association.

 

Whether you are new to the island or a longstanding resident, getting involved in charitable giving and volunteering can be a great way to make a positive difference to others while enriching your own Singapore experience.

Currently, the British Association supports 5 charities. To be selected for support from us, charities must demonstrate that they operate efficiently and transparently, that they offer niche or unique services for which there is a great need, and that they are not receiving disproportionate funding from other sources.

You can find all the latest calls for volunteers from our charities here.
