Our proactive service in the community is a highly valued and historical tradition at Attwaters Jameson Hill.
At Attwaters Jameson Hill we regularly participate and organise events and fund-raising projects in the local communities of each of our offices. It is our philosophy that contributing meaningfully to those who live in our communities demonstrates one of our core values – that the legal profession has a moral responsibility to help those in need and to give back to the communities in which they operate.
Many of our colleagues hold significant roles with civic and charitable organisations, educational and cultural institutions and our staff nominate a ‘Charity of the Year’ each year which we support and work with to raise funds.
Please see our Equality and Diversity policy here.
Current examples of our community policies in action include:
We have a proud record of supporting local and national charities. Each year, as nominated and voted for by our colleagues, the Attwaters Jameson Hill charity of the year is the recipient of funds raised by a range of in-house and external activities.
In 2022 we are delighted to be sponsoring Evelina London House as our chosen charity this year. Run as an independent charity but partially supported by Ronald McDonald House Charities, the House provides accommodation, practical and emotional support to families whose children are undergoing treatment or surgery at Evelina London Children’s hospital.
Last year, the charity supported 339 families through their child’s hospital stay, with the longest stay lasting nearly a year. With 59 bedrooms, shared kitchen and bathroom facilities, and 18 members of staff, it costs £25 per night to accommodate a single family at Evelina London House, with the average stay totalling 16 nights.
Their aim is simple: to help parents be as close to their children as possible at an incredibly stressful time and spare them the expense of private accommodation or long commutes. We are so excited to be raising money for such an important cause and can’t wait to get started with this year’s programme of fundraisers!
