Support us

BSS-Support is at present run by five voluntary Directors and a very small group of our supporters to help former borders and those close to them. We provide conferences for former boarders, sponsor conferences and workshops for professionals, instigate the publication of books on the experiences of former boarders, provide links to a range of resources, publish a regular newsletter and assist research projects, in addition to answering enquiries and giving individual advice.

An annual donation of £25 (that’s just 48p a week) would help greatly to meet our costs and provide support and information to those who seek it. Every penny you give goes directly in support of our work.

The Bursary Fund

We would also be very happy to receive one-off or regular donations towards our Bursary Fund. Each year BSS-Support will be raising funds to help survivors attend the BSS weekends run by Nick Duffell and others, which they could not otherwise afford. Please would you enable others to benefit from these life-changing courses; because we specifically earmark these gifts, please let us know that you would like to make a donation earmarked for the Bursary Fund by emailing

Thank you.
