Responsible business


We're committed to supporting the community in which we live and work through charitable giving, fundraising and volunteering.

In order to impact and drive sustainable change, we collaborate with community organisations working to tackle important societal issues. Every two years, our people vote to select a charity aligned to our business and our values to support through giving, fundraising and volunteering. This means it is true to our purpose as a firm and we all come together for the same goal to gain maximum impact.

In 2022, our people voted to support Making the Leap. Making the Leap is a London-based charity that improves social mobility by raising the aspirations of, and increasing opportunities for, young people from less-advantaged socio-economic backgrounds in the UK.

As a firm, we're committed to providing a range of support to encourage our people to share their time, skills and talent to benefit the local community:

  • Our dedicated Charity Committee champion engagement and lead volunteering and fundraising activity across the firm.
  • We give our employees a volunteer day each year to contribute their time and talent towards a charitable cause of their choice.
  • We match funds raised by our people for our charity partner up to a maximum of £20,000 per year.
  • We offer a payroll giving scheme that enables our people to contribute to charity directly out of their gross pay.

We are delighted to have been chosen as Howard Kennedy’s charity partner for 2022-2024. The incredible team at Howard Kennedy are clearly passionate about supporting the futures of the young people we work with. This fantastic partnership will go a long way in helping us transform many young lives, not just through Howard Kennedy’s generous fundraising efforts and company match funding, but through their company-wide engagement in our volunteering opportunities.
