Deadline 23rd July 2021
Leading UK law firm Shoosmiths has launched The Shoosmiths Foundation, a grant making body working to help address societal issues, empower sustainable change and improve the lives of the people and the environment in the UK.
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 Foundation offers grants in the following categories, 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 our 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; and
- advance access to justice in the UK
