Our specialised charity was created in 1823 in response to the dreadful poverty suffered by British migrant workers and their families in Paris. Almost two centuries later we continue to assist British citizens who have made their homes in France but, through misfortune, can no longer make ends meet.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Meet some of the people the BCF has helped

Our event - November 2019

The British Charitable Fund,Paris, under the patronage of Lord Llewellyn, The British Ambassador in France, held a Musical Evening of lighthearted fun in aid of the BCF

The music was provided by the senior school jazz band and soloists of the “British School of Paris”, under the direction of Simon Lockwood.

All proceeds were in aid of the British Charitable Fund in its commitment to help vulnerable British families living in France who, particularly in the winter-time, struggle to keep warm and properly fed.

Since March 2020, the threat of such events accelerating the spread of the Covid virus has meant that no new events have been programmed.
