Bevan Brittan seeks to play an active role within its local office
communities. Through regular fundraising events, support for local
initiatives and annual charity donations at Christmas, we have
established a culture of giving within the firm. In December 2021 we
donated a total of £60,000 to our four regional office charities, with
each charity receiving £15,000 to help fund their vital services.
Our current selected charities in Bristol, Birmingham and Leeds are
Great Western Air Ambulance, InUnity and Maggie's Cancer Care.
We want to demonstrate our commitment to these causes through actions
rather than words; colleagues from across the firm are already heavily
involved, living and breathing the four pillars of our Responsible
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
Collectively, these four pillars ensure we look after our colleagues'
wellbeing; offer an environment in which all can progress on merit,
regardless of personal circumstances or background; give something
back to the communities in which we work; and protect the environment.
Bevan Brittan is proudly a carbon neutral firm. We have achieved the
UN's Climate Neutral Now accreditation and our environmental
sustainability plan is focussed on achieving our net zero carbon target.
Each lawyer has the opportunity to undertake pro bono legal work for
local charities and not-for-profit organisations. This has seen
colleagues support the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (Bristol),
Moseley Road Swimming Baths (Birmingham), Yorkshire Cat Rescue
(Leeds), Great Western Credit Union (London), and several others.
