Support for Members
Wellbeing and financial worries traditionally are two issues rarely discussed at the Bar and both have been particularly important given the challenges facing the profession during the Covid-19 pandemic.
There are many financial and wellbeing resources available to support members of the Inn throughout their career at the Bar. Resources and initiatives are provided by the Inn and also by other external bodies such as the Bar Council and Barristers Benevolent Association, focussing on wellbeing support and financial aid.
In addition, the Inn’s Social & Wellbeing Sub-Committee organises events to improve the wellbeing of members. All members are encouraged to attend. Information on upcoming wellbeing events can be found in our What’s On section and are also advertised in our members’ newsletter.
We recognise that the Covid-19 pandemic was a particularly challenging time for many of our members. Accordingly, we have produced a guide outlining the variety of resources available to assist our members in finding the wellbeing support they need.
