Corporate Social Responsibility

Our CSR Values

Our core CARE values don’t only guide the way in which we conduct our legal services for clients, they also influence where we sit within the communities we serve. We are dedicated to giving back in whatever way we can, from providing free legal advice to those most in need, to fundraising throughout the firm for a variety of local charities and working towards improving our carbon footprint.

At the heart of it, Farleys care.

Below are just some examples of the ways in which we approach our Corporate Social Responsibility programme.

Charitable Support and Donations

Over the years Farleys have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for a wide variety of causes. Staff are regularly encouraged and supported in undertaking individual challenges in aid of charities close to their hearts alongside firm-wide pledges. The firm also set up the Farleys Foundation, a registered charity which supports local and deserving causes. You can read more about the Farleys Foundation here.

As well as ad-hoc donations and fundraising, Farleys regularly support a number of specific charities year on year including;

Charities We Support

Cash for Kids, Rock FM (Charity No. 1122062)

We work closely with Cash for Kids supporting events held by the charity themselves as well as hosting our own annual client event which has raised in excess of £35,000 since its inception. We also provide legal advice and support on a pro bono basis in order to ensure the charity can continue to support disabled and disadvantaged children in Lancashire with the fantastic work they do.

Rosemere Cancer Foundation (Charity No. 1131583)

Our support for Rosemere Cancer Foundation includes a pledge to raise £10,000 back in 2017. We beat our target, eventually raising over £11,000 through a year-long campaign of fundraising events including a race night, fashion show, Christmas jumper day, Manchester 10K, and other challenges. Following on from this, our support for Rosemere continues with annual events and support to help the charity provide facilities and equipment for patients being treated at the Cancer Centre in Preston and the local Cancer Units throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria. They also fund vital local research, helping to provide the very best care possible for patients across the region.

CancerHelp Preston (Charity No. 1032828)

In recent years we have hosted and sponsored a number of events in aid of CancerHelp Preston including a race night and our annual Christmas shopping event raising funds to aid the charity’s work in supporting cancer patients and their families across the region.

Blackburn Youth Zone (Charity No. 1151247)

Blackburn Youth Zone provides a hub for local children to change and develop their future prospects. As a firm dedicated to nurturing the next generation, as shown through our award-winning trainee programme, and with our roots in Blackburn, we whole-heartedly support the work the Youth Zone do. We regularly support fundraising events including the annual Blackburn Beer Festival and the BiLA Dinner.

Charities@SAMS – Blackburn

We have acted as drop off points for the Easter Challenge and Christmas Wishes campaigns, collecting chocolate and toys for disadvantaged local children with staff and clients regularly making donations and encouraging others too.

What the charities have to say…

 

Cash for Kids Logo

Farleys are such wonderful supporters of ours. Their help, from both a legal and fundraising perspective, continues to be invaluable to us.

Nikki Thompson, Charity Manager – Cash for Kids

 

 

Farleys have supported the Rosemere Cancer Foundation for several years and in doing so have not only raised money but have raised our profile throughout the region. This support has been of a corporate nature, sponsoring our events, as well on personal basis with staff fundraising initiatives. Farleys support has enabled us to continue to provide the very best care to cancer patients throughout East Lancashire by helping fund research, patient welfare projects and additional specialist equipment.

Other charities we have recently supported include Mustard Tree, Preston Food Bank, Maundy Relief, Nightsafe, We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, Motor Neurone Disease Association, St John Ambulance and Derian House Children’s Hospice.

Farleys in the Community

Free Legal Advice – We run a weekly clinic from our Blackburn office providing free advice and support to the local community. Alongside this, we also run clinic specially aimed at family law advice from our Blackburn and Burnley offices.

Pro Bono Work – Our solicitors were proud to sit on the pro bono panel created to support the families of the victims of the Manchester Arena attack.

Legal packages – We offer a selection of reduced cost legal packages to support local businesses through daily hurdles including our Evolve package for start-up businesses and HR advantage for fixed cost employment law services.

Protecting Our Environment

We regularly strive for ways to reduce the firm’s carbon footprint and protect the environment for years to come.

Our Shadsworth office houses solar panels which generate a renewable energy source with less impact on the environment.

We recycle wherever possible and encourage staff to do so across their working and home lives. Our IT team continuously develop online case management systems in order to reduce paper usage across the firm.
