The British Science Association is a charity established under Royal Charter and governed by a Council which forms the Board of Trustees.

The BSA employs around 30 members of staff, all of whom are based in its offices in South Kensington, London.

The 17 scientific sections of the British Science Association, which contribute primarily to the annual British Science Festival, are run by committed volunteers.
