Founded in 1946, the British Residents’ Association of Switzerland (BRA) is a non profit organisation, for British, Commonwealth and Irish Citizens.
The Association organises numerous cultural, recreational, and social events in each of its regions for the benefit of its members.

We look forward to meeting you soon at one of our regional events.
