We have a long-standing commitment to supporting our local communities through fundraising, volunteering and providing pro bono legal advice for those who cannot access justice.
Whether it's volunteering as an individual or as part of a team, we encourage all of our colleagues to maximise the opportunity of their 14 hour (pro rata) Community Allowance, by taking part in skills based volunteering opportunities aligned to our Responsible Business strategy.
Improving access to jobs and justice is a strategic priority and has been a focus of our community investment volunteering programme for many years. We work with schools that are identified as being in most need of support to provide students with mentoring and skills-based activities focused on numeracy, literacy and careers and to run public speaking competitions.
The Irwin Mitchell Charities Foundation
"I am very proud to be one of the founding trustees of the IMCF. Back in 1997, we never envisaged that the charity would develop and grow as it has done! We planted an acorn and it’s now a flourishing oak tree. We’ve raised money for, and supported, so many good causes over the years and the commitment and support of Irwin Mitchell’s colleagues has been truly outstanding.
“This includes year-on-year funding through the firm and colleague donations, which have enabled the IMCF to donate over £3m to good causes since it was founded. This includes supporting our charity partners, topping up the personal fundraising efforts of colleagues, donating to local homeless charities and foodbanks near each of our offices each winter and appeals by the Disaster Emergency Committee.”
