The Market Research Benevolent Association exists to help those who work or have worked in market research in any capacity, whether as researchers, interviewers, or office staff, as employees or independents, and whether members of The Market Research Society or not.
In complete confidence, the MRBA gives financial help to people -- people who are sick, who have been bereaved, who have met with an accident, or who have suffered misfortune in any other way.
The MRBA may give an outright grant or make a loan. And sometimes we can supplement an applicant’s income for a time, when adverse circumstances reduce his or her ability to earn a living. Of course, every claim has to be investigated carefully, but the MRBA is as generous as we can afford to be.
Now you may know all this, but one of the biggest problems is that not everybody in the industry does -- and we can’t help in a case that we don’t know about.
Please make your colleagues and other friends across the industry aware of the MRBA and ensure that they let people in need know of the Association’s existence.
If you or anyone you know needs help, please contact Danielle Scott, the MRBA Secretary/Treasurer, and be assured the enquiry will be treated as strictly confidential on:
11 Tremayne Walk
Tel: 0845 652 03 03
Fax: 0845 652 03 03
To enable us to continue with its work, the MRBA also needs the help of donors and volunteers from within the market research industry. If you would like to enquire about the ways you can do this -- say, through a regular subscription, a one-off donation, or by helping to arrange fund-raising activities -- please contact our Secretary/Treasurer by telephone or email above.
