IMPACT

COMMITMENT TO MAKING A DIFFERENCE

WE KNOW

HOW TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

We’re committed to making a difference. That’s not just a commitment to you and your business: We’re committing to changing lives in our day-to-day work and beyond.

We’re making an impact. Our relationship with you allows us to have a direct impact on your goals, and in turn, you support us in impacting the lives in the local community as well as lives across the world.

PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

PROACTIVE CHANGES TO THE WAY WE WORK

We’re committed to sustainable development, whether that’s by recycling, switching off the lights, cycling to work, car sharing or getting our fingers dirty to help out in the community.

We’ve also taken steps to reduce our carbon footprint, having done so by 86% in the last 18 months. This has saved us over £3,000 on energy bills by switching to a greener energy provider. As a result, our building is now powered by 100% biomass renewable electricity and carbon zero gas.

As bronze levels members of Investors of the Environment, our team are often out of the office making a difference with litter pick-ups and garden maintenance.

CHARITY WORK

INTERACTION WITH OUR COMMUNITIES

To celebrate out 100th birthday in 2020, we’re undergoing an intensive fundraising campaign to raise £100,000 for 100 different charities or community projects.

Each year staff are asked to vote for our Charity of the Year and contribute to ways of making money for these causes. This year we are proud to support the Tiny Lives Trust, which we have supported by arranging a high-profile Chocolate Box Charity Ball. Our thanks go to over 150 guests who attended to help raise over £7,000 for this incredible cause.

As part of our ongoing efforts, our charity cell also organises a number of charity events each year that help to support our local charities and community projects.

BUY ONE, GIVE ONE

ALLOWING US TO IMPACT THE WORLD

Since we were founded, our mission statement has always been “Helping to improve the lives of our clients, our people, and our communities.” But we wanted our support to reach even further.

So, we’ve partnered with Buy1Give1 to do exactly that and have a positive impact on lives across the world. Here we believe that every business has the power to change lives by integrating giving into its everyday business activities. Doing this together with you is a simple but powerful example of putting that belief into action.

By partnering with us, you’re also making a contribution to a plethora of projects, in line with the UN’s sustainable development goals including access to clean water, medical support, education and nourishing meals.

Together we really can make a huge impact.

BARRIER GROUP

PROVIDING THEIR CONNECTIONS WITH CONFIDENCE

Working in the off-shore gas industry, Barrier came under some financial difficulty in 1995. They came to us for help, and we worked with them to give their creditors and authorities confidence to continue working together.

Since then, Barrier have gone on to develop their own products and expertise, which put them in a position to claim for R&D tax credits. We helped advise and support them through this application, which has led them to being ahead of their market in so many ways!

SWEENEY MILLER LLP

SUPPORT THROUGH MANY TRANSITIONS

Paul Miller came to us when his solicitor firm was going through some dramatic changes. They were transitioning from a traditional partnership to an LLP, with one partner retiring and another one coming onboard.

In order to make the transitions smooth for them, we sat down and created a clear and planned road map, as well as provided support on a personal and corporate level. This has Paul shape his business with no stone left unturned.
