Need Help?

Here when you need us

Life presents many challenges, and sometimes unpredictable events can turn lives upside down. We have a long track record of providing support to people in times of crisis by helping them to get back on their feet.

There is often a real immediacy to the problems faced by the people we support, and we can prevent them getting even more serious. In urgent cases, we can provide assistance straight away.

Eligibility for support from us is based on work experience in the UK rather than being a member of one of the professional membership organisations.

Our support is free, impartial and strictly confidential. It is tailored to meet individual circumstances and needs, and we can help in a wide variety of ways. Find out more .

Unsure if we can help you?

Call us on 020 7580 2823 for an informal chat with our friendly and sensitive welfare team.

Alternatively, email  or write to us at Welfare Team, Architects Benevolent Society, 43 Portland Place, London W1B 1QH.

If you know of someone who might benefit from our assistance, please pass on our details.

“Thanks to ABS, life is back on track and we are so grateful for the support” ~Portia, Landscape Architect
