The BEARR Trust

BEARR stands for ‘British Emergency Aid to Russia and the Republics’, which was its main role when it was set up informally in 1991 by a group of British women in Moscow.

Later, BEARR was set up more formally as a Trust under UK charity law and changed its remit to support the NGOs which were beginning to be established in the successor countries.

It offered training and cooperation with relevant NGOs in the UK, and ran various projects funded by western governmental and charitable organisations.

BEARR has continued to concentrate on health and social welfare issues, with particular emphasis on care of vulnerable groups and reform of the way the state deals with or looks after them.

It is based in the UK and managed by a number of trustees with long experience and extensive knowledge of the countries of the region.

BEARR has many partners among small and medium-sized voluntary and charitable organisations in the countries of the region.
