Proudly supporting the Architects Benevolent Society

The Birmingham Architectural Association (BAA) is proud to be supporting the Architects Benevolent Society (ABS). Helping to facilitate their fantastic work, supporting the wellbeing of professionals and students across the built environment; in the West Midlands and nationally.

Every month the BAA, with the support of the patrons and sponsors, will make a donation to the ABS.

Encouraging others to do the same and raising awareness within the architecture and design community. With this support, this fantastic charity is able to be there for both them and their families if they need it.


Being able to support and make a positive difference to colleagues across the region and country has always been at the heart of the BAA. Now more than ever, the committee is determined to help to support the members of the wider architectural profession or their families.


“The BAA strongly aligns with the ABS and champion all the hard work they do to support people across the West Midlands and nationally. During the current instability, we couldn’t think of a more pressing time to put our money where our mouth is and do something for our community. I am so proud to be a part of these two amazing organisations and all their efforts providing genuine aid to those in need.” – Amy Francis-Smith


VP Amy Francis-Smith and Committee Member Simeon Shtebunaev are proudly the two West Midlands ambassadors for the charity.

As of December 2020, the BAA have donated £7000 to the Architects Benevolent Society.
