The British Association of Former United Nations Civil Servants (BAFUNCS) was founded on 21 July 1977. It is an association for all United Nations system civil servants, whether retired, still working with the United Nations, or still working but not with the United Nations, who wish to maintain links with the United Nations and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The aims of the Association are to:

- encourage and help members to keep in touch with former colleagues through social, cultural and leisure activities:
- ensure that members are kept aware of changes in pensions and health insurance matters:
- help members and their families moving to the United Kingdom on their retirement in the United Kingdom;
- extend welfare support and advice to its members and other former employees of the United Nations and its Organizations and Bodies and their spouses in need;
- represent members' interests in their relations with the United Nations and its Organizations and Bodies and the United Kingdom Government Authorities;
- support the Federation of Associations of Former International Civil Servants and maintain liaison with such other bodies as are concerned in protecting and improving retirement conditions;
- co-operate with organisations engaged in mobilising public support for the United Nations and its Organizations and Bodies and national organisations concerned with support for the elderly.
