The Shoosmiths Foundation

Deadline 24th June 2022

Grants are available for UK registered charities undertaking work in the UK for projects that relate to social mobility prospects.

Grants of between £25,000 and £50,000 are available in 2022.

The Shoosmiths Foundation builds on Shoosmiths’ existing community investment programme which continues to support local charity partners through staff fundraising and firm donations, staff volunteering and provision of legal advice pro bono.

The annual funding is intended for charitable work which addresses the ShooSmiths Foundation’s funding priorities, which are to:

  • Advance social mobility in the legal sector, and across the UK, in line with the Shoosmiths social mobility action plan. Particular focus on charitable organisations which share the Foundation’s belief that ‘talent can come from anywhere’, and which align their interventions with local socio-economic analysis and need.
  • Advance a carbon net zero UK.
  • Advance access to justice in the UK.

The Shoosmiths Foundation aimed at improving lives and the environment launched
