At GL Law, we’re committed to improving the world around us and aim to do good in all our actions.
Using our combined skills, knowledge and connections we make a positive contribution environmentally, socially and to the local industries in which we operate.
We are committed to helping some of the most vulnerable people within our community, be that by way of fundraising, making donations in kind, volunteering or pro bono advice and assistance.
In addition to the many social and charitable initiatives our staff are personally involved in, GL Law annually elects a local charity to support financially and in kind. In the first year of our endeavour we successfully raised over £15,000 for St Peter’s Hospice.
We recently supported Feeding Bristol, a local charity striving for a ‘Zero-Hunger Bristol’. Over a 2-year period we raised money via tuck shops, dress down days, bake sales and bucket collections. The team also provided assistance in catering hubs, warehouses and making deliveries!
Environmental responsibility is important to us and we try to minimise any diverse impact of our business. We have taken the Bristol Green Capital Pledge to take action to help make Bristol a greener, low carbon city. Our various green initiatives include a cycle to work scheme, pedometer challenges and increased recycling. We have made significant progress in becoming a paperless office over the last 18 months which has been accelerated as we move to an agile way of working.
Our staff have also contributed to and taken part in mentoring schemes, in which they provide career focused support to students from sectors of society that are under represented in the legal profession. This year we are supporting the Social Mobility Foundation (SMF) as professional volunteers and mentors. The SMF is a charity which aims to make a practical improvement in social mobility for young people.
