Our community and pro bono work is about using our skills to have a positive social impact. This is not just the right thing to do – it is good for the firm, our people and part of our culture.
We focus on pro bono, because that’s where we can add most value, social mobility, because it is important for the future sustainability of our society’s workforce (both ours and our clients’), and being a responsible local citizen where we help the community on our doorstep to thrive.
Underpinning all this is the encouragement we give to our people so that they can support the causes that they care about.
Supporting employee giving
We support employee giving through a number of initiatives such as Payroll Giving. Our Funds for Fundraisers scheme provides matched funding for to employees who fundraise in their own time for charities and schools. Future trainees are also welcome to apply for this scheme.
We are unable to accept unsolicited funding applications from schools, charities or individuals.
In 2019 we have begun a partnership with Internews, a charity that works to improve communication flows between humanitarian organisations, local media and the people affected by natural and man-made crises. Through funding and pro bono support, we are proud to support their humanitarian crisis work.
