          Corporate Responsibility

          Corporate Responsibility means a lot to us. Being committed to innovation and excellence goes far beyond our business and legal work and means standing up for the things we believe in.

          We’re determined to create and maintain a business that is a force for good, through diversity and inclusivity. We employ the best people - working together to generate value for our business, a great experience for our clients and a great place to work for our people.

          DWF Foundation

          The DWF Foundation, founded by DWF LLP has the sole aim of providing funds, resources and support to help our communities achieve their full potential.

          The Foundation builds on our existing community activity in a focused and strategic way and demonstrates that when we all work together we can make a significant, positive impact on the communities in which we live and work.

          The pillars of the Foundation are: Homelessness Health & Wellbeing, Employability and Education and within these the Foundation has been set up to particularly help with initiatives that develop and improve local communities by:

          • Tackling a specific community issue;
          • Helping voluntary and community groups become more effective and efficient;
          • Encouraging the involvement in the community of those too often excluded; and
          • Enabling young people to develop skills for the benefit of the community.
          • Our vision is to encourage all our people to work together as a catalyst for change. 

          Each of our offices has a dedicated team who are committed to our corporate responsibilities. Through the DWF Foundation we hope to build upon the excellent work that they already do with our local communities and charities.

          Environmental Management system

          We’ve launched a new Environmental Management system.  We’ve achieved ISO14001 certification and we’re maintaining it. We’ve reduced CO2 emissions per employee from 2.6 to 2 tonnes and a 15% reduction on paper reduction already. Telephone and video conferencing has increased by over 150% and we recycle 80% of our waste. We’ve even hosted Responsible Supply Chain Management events for BITC - and we haven’t stopped yet.

          We want everyone to reach their full potential and pass that value on to clients. Our values aren’t just words.  We live by them every day and they underpin how we care for people regardless of age, gender, relationship and family status, professional skills or status, race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, disability, sexuality, religion or belief.

          We’re committed to community projects and activities. We build long lasting, sustainable relationships helping young people to achieve more in education, vulnerable people to find work, the voluntary and community sectors to become more effective, and helping to protect and improve the environment as well as growing enterprise across the UK and beyond.<

          In everything, however, we’re constantly testing ourselves and looking for more that we can do.
