Corporate social responsibility

We are proud to have a thriving Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme. At Weightmans, our people are actively encouraged to participate in CSR initiatives. We engage in a number of initiatives including:

  • Partnering with local charities, to fundraise and promote their work.
  • Working with young people of all ages in our communities to enhance their vocational and personal development.
  • Supporting our staff who wish to support other worthy causes.

Young and disadvantaged people

Staff from each of our offices regularly visit both primary and secondary schools in some of the most disadvantaged areas, whether to undertake the right to read initiative (assisting primary school children with basic reading skills), or holding mock careers interviews and CV assistance.

Volunteering

To facilitate staff engagement in CSR initiatives, we have a policy of offering two days paid CSR leave per year per person. This has encouraged our staff to support a number of charities in addition to those supported by the firm.
