The BBS receives almost weekly requests for assistance from British citizens who have find themselves in a time of need. Applicants for relief face difficult decisions such as the need for emergency repatriation, assistance in recovering from a violent crime, rental assistance for those on a fixed income, affording essential medication and maintaining health insurance. Many of the cases are unique in their nature but the applicant is always a British national.
The BBS continues to provide assistance to those struggling to recover from the economic impact of the pandemic. Since March 2020, more than $250,000 in aid has been given throughout the Western United States to British citizens in need.
If you are in a position where you can help the BBS please make a donation today. Any amount helps.
