Welcome to BEARR!
The BEARR Trust is a UK-based organisation set up to help children and other vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in Russia, Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the South Caucasus. We believe the best way to do this is to help small NGOs working in health and social welfare to build knowledge, know-how, skills and contacts including with those doing similar work in the UK
We hope to see you at our forthcoming events!
The 25th Anniversary Lecture was held on 7 June at the EBRD in London. Details via link at top right of this page. A report will be published soon.
On 12-13 May, The BEARR Trust held a conference jointly with the Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU) in Lviv, Ukraine, for NGOs supporting people displaced by conflict in Ukraine, held at UCU. Details here.
