National law firm announces partnering with a host of local charities

12 January 2022

Browne Jacobson has announced its new charity partners which it will support to raise vital funds for over the next two years. 

Each of the firm’s five offices have nominated a local community charity that underpin its commitment to diversity and inclusion as well as corporate social responsibility.

The regional charities include two organisations that are focused on tackling homelessness, an organisation that works with unemployed and disadvantaged young people; an organisation that is helping to forge connections between young people from diverse, lower income backgrounds and professional role models; and a charity that specialises in engaging young people, parents and carers from black and UK minority ethnic communities with the aim of reducing youth violence, supporting mental health resilience and connecting young people with their purpose.

The five regional charities are named as:

Browne Jacobson has a series of internal fundraising events and initiatives planned in which members of its Community Action Groups will take part in and will help highlight the important and positive work each charity is doing. 

Some of the initiatives include a trainee fundraising challenge, providing mentoring and interview support for young people, running introduction to law workshops, helping out on breakfast projects for homeless, contributing to volunteering projects and providing the charities with pro-bono advice around HR, governance and marketing. The firm also recently supported on various charity projects which included the launch of a charity Christmas card and Christmas raffle fundraisers.

Browne Jacobson’s managing partner, Richard Medd who is the Community Action sponsor at the firm, added: “We are very passionate about supporting local causes and giving back to the communities we are connected to. 

“We look to work with organisations and services that like us are pushing for positive societal change so we are glad to be teaming up with each of these valuable charities that after what has been another challenging year for the sector are in need of funding more than ever.

“The fantastic work and messages that each of these charities and not-for-profit organisations do and promote has really resonated with our people this year and their focus chimes with our own ethos and values around social mobility, diversity and inclusion.

“We are looking forward to taking part in all of the exciting and fun fundraising events over the next few years and highlight the crucial work they do."

Every two years, each of Browne Jacobson’s offices partners with a local charity to support in their area through various fundraising initiatives. The firm also makes regular donations to local charities and causes through its Browne Jacobson Charitable Trust. In the financial year 2020 - 21, the firm raised and donated over £42,000 for good causes across its five-office network.
