Scottish Chartered Accountants Benevolent Association (SCABA)

SCABA: The charity for CAs in need

Founded in 1919, to assist widows and children of CAs who were injured or killed in the Great War, the Scottish Chartered Accountants Benevolent Association (SCABA) offers assistance to ICAS members and their dependants who may need support.

Now, a hundred years on, we offer support to CAs and their dependents for many different reasons. Sometimes the life of a CA and their dependents can change suddenly and drastically e.g. ill health, death, and unemployment are just some of reasons SCABA has provided help.

SCABA helps, not just financially by way of grants or loans, but also through practical support and guidance. As well as providing ongoing support, SCABA has assisted with house modifications due to disability, housing repairs, respite care, retraining, university fees for dependants, and much more.

This is the kind of life-changing help that has been made possible by the generous donations and legacies of past and present CAs on whom SCABA relies to continue its work.

Each individual request for assistance is considered in complete confidence by the SCABA Council.
