Our commitment is simple: to be with you, and your family, for life.

From the moment you begin your training, throughout your professional life, and into retirement we're here to help - in all kinds of ways. And we're not just here for past and present ICAEW members, close families can access our services too.

Did you know?

All our services are free to past and present ICAEW members and their families, but they are heavily invested in by CABA, ensuring that the services we provide are up-to-date and of the highest standard.

We take your privacy seriously. Whilst we work with ICAEW, we never share any information with them about the individuals we support. We don’t share personal information or contact details with other charities or companies either. Never.

We’re not volunteers or ex-accountants. CABA staff are experts in their specialism. And where expertise does not exist in the charity, it is contracted from experienced and established professionals.

CABA is a very well-funded charity. We’re able to support every area of life for past and present ICAEW members and their families, and we’ll be able to keep that promise for generations to come. We can afford to invest in you.

We’re not funded by ICAEW. Everything we do is funded by the generous donations of members, and the wise investment of those donations.
