Ramsdens Responsibility

Ramsdens have ‘charity’ at the heart of their business and understand that their responsibility to the wider communities does not stop there.

At the heart of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach they look to develop sustainable relationships with their local communities, clients and staff. CSR is embedded within their culture and is key to driving their business forward.

Helping the firm support local charities, staff are able to take advantage of:

  • a paid volunteering day for charity every year
  • staff vote for their local office charity to support
  • local champions for CSR

The firm also supports the local community by working with local education partnerships to offer young people work experience and by encouraging staff to go in to schools to assist with business skills and career days throughout the region and also support the Partner in Law initiative with Huddersfield University.

Examples of recent activities include:

  • Working with the NSPCC to provide 'Staying Safe Assemblies' to KS1 and KS2 students.
  • Assisting the Yorkshire Children's Centre (YCC) by helping to decorate and paint Jo Cox House.
  • Working with the Getaway Girls, Basis and Haircuts4Homeless to provide free haircuts for their service users.
  • Volunteering with Slaithwaite Meals on Wheels to provide a weekly service to the local elderly community.
  • Providing free wills to those in need during the 'Make a will fortnight'.
