As an award winning law firm, Express Solicitors remain committed to being an involved, engaged and positive force in our local community and the UK as a whole. We take our corporate social responsibility (CSR) incredibly seriously.
With a genuine belief in giving back more than what you take, we have worked hard to instil a culture of responsibility, social conscience and charity within our firm.
Specialising in personal injury claims, the wellbeing of individuals is at the core to our business and we aim to reflect this in our actions outside the courtroom.
Express Solicitors corporate charity
We have had a number of specially chosen charities that we have corporately sponsored throughout the years. Providing financial support through donations and fundraising initiatives, we have been proud to help organisations such as Forever Manchester, Trussell Trust South Stockport Foodbank, Stockport Cerebral Palsy, the Spinal Injuries Association and many more on their mission to improve the lives of people throughout the UK.
With a large, nationwide client base, we feel an obligation to try and help as many people across the country as we can. We dedicate time, money and resource to help large national organisations such as Children In Need, Comic Relief, Cancer Research UK, Macmillan Cancer Support, Dementia UK, and many more.
Aware of the immediate impact of financial donations as well as the long term effects of raising ongoing awareness, we take pride in engaging with incredible causes throughout the year to help vulnerable people across the UK. Whether it’s a lighter touch like a bake sale, or through direct sponsorship, it’s our commitment to do what we can to help those most vulnerable in society.
As a company, we are proud to support charities such as:
Forever Manchester raises essential funds to provide community support across Greater Manchester, investing in numerous grassroots projects.
Trussell Trust South Stockport Foodbank
Based in Hazel Grove Baptist Church, the Trussell Trust South Stockport Foodbank offers emergency supplies and food vouchers to Stockport’s most vulnerable people.
Stockport Cerebral Palsy Society
The Stockport Cerebral Palsy Society, also known as Supportability, offers help to children, young people and adults with a range of complex disabilities.
Spinal Injuries Association
The Spinal Injuries Association supports those whose lives have been affected by a spinal cord injury, helping them to live a happy and fulfilled life.
Our dedicated staff teams have also helped to raise thousands of pounds for nationwide charities and local groups, through a variety of sporting events and other activities. Our proudest achievements include:
- A 980-mile bike ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats
- A year of ‘dress-down’ days, raising more than £4,000 for over 10 charities
- A £5,000 donation and free legal services for the Manchester Bombing Appeal.
We’re proud to work with causes supporting vulnerable families, cancer research, mental health, life-changing physical conditions and much more.
Another central tenet of Express Solicitors is our ongoing commitment to sustainability. We are always reviewing our strategies to cut the firm’s carbon footprint, by reducing waste, restricting use of natural resources, and using renewable energies.
We espouse sustainability as part of our workplace culture – encouraging all employees to car share or cycle to work. We also believe in giving something back. In 2013, we donated over 1 tonne of old light fittings, and gave the scrap metal value to the Trussell Trust. With sustainable computer programs and eco-conscious staff, we’re doing our bit to make the world a better place.
Looking after Greater Manchester
Through supporting local organisations such as The Booth Centre, The Christie Hospital, North Manchester General Hospital, and more, we see the effects of our social responsibility right here at home.
We’re also involved in supporting local youth groups and sports teams. From bake sales to sponsorship, we’ve supported the Whitegate Scouts, Oulton Park Cricket Club, Toxteth Tigers Basketball Programme and even the Northenden Boat Race.
We’re here to help with our unlimited legal advice
That’s right, we offer unlimited legal support. Have a question about claiming? You can speak with us for as long as you like as many times as you like. We’ll let you know your legal rights completely free of charge and with no obligation to make a claim
Express Solicitors understand that a culture of Corporate Social Responsibility doesn’t start and end with words on a web page, it has to come from our own people. We take every effort to encourage our staff to actively engage with their community, giving time and energy to important causes.
We carry our work with us though. As lawyers committed to providing justice to individuals throughout our community, we engage in initiatives such as the North West Legal Support Trust to support those who need legal help but can’t necessarily afford it.
What does Corporate Social Responsibility mean in practice?
From bake sales and fancy dress to financial support and legal representation, being socially responsible means more to Express Solicitors than simple lip service.
Over the years we’ve been an enthusiastic supporter of large, nationwide charities, as well as an active member of the Greater Manchester community. While we encourage each of our staff to give back to their community, either on their own or with the company, our mission to enrich the lives of those around us speaks for itself.
