Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility, or CSR as it is sometimes known, has become the term that describes how organisations contribute to the well-being and development of the community in which they operate. For many solicitors’ practices this is an integral part of their activities - through practising their profession, lawyers assist both individuals and businesses.
Over the years, Wilkin Chapman LLP has acted for private clients and those who are publicly funded. We have also contributed to the success and development of the community by acting for companies and large organisations whose activities in turn provide employment, opportunity and contribute to the economic health of the region.
Our staff and partners alike support the community in many ways - from spearheading charity fund raising campaigns, to working voluntarily as a college or school governor to taking part in charity fun runs and gaining sponsorship.
Members of staff from our offices have attend local junior schools in disadvantaged areas one lunchtime per week to listen to children read.
Partners and staff have also taken part in a number of community-based projects which require them to work as a team to plan, organise and control tasks, including preparing a three-course meal for 32 guests at Harbour Place Grimsby. The meal was created, cooked and served by members of staff from our Grimsby office and raised £1,100 for the charity.
The firm makes regular financial contributions to various local charitable organisations surrounding all of our offices as well as holding a number of events throughout the year, such as bake sales, raffles and dress down days.
We also support our staff in their sporting activities. Currently, we sponsor a netball team and help pay for pitch fees, clothing and equipment. We also sponsor both the Lincoln and Grimsby 10K events and raise funds for our nominated charity.
