Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Forsters

The principles of sustainability are integrated into our business practices and are reflected in the way we source materials and in the choice of the suppliers and partners we work with. We are dedicated to reducing paper consumption and to recycling as much of our waste as possible. The firm has an active Green Committee and Staff Social Committee, these forums promote wellness initiatives throughout the year.

St Andrew's Club

Getting involved

St Andrew's Club is a community-based youth club that provides fun and educational based activities for young people from the ages of five to adulthood. The Club is located in close proximity to our offices in Mayfair, meaning that we have many opportunities to work with the charity and the young people it supports. The firm’s partnership with St Andrew's Club is a critical part of our wider CSR strategy. Our focus is to support the Club's various initiatives that contribute to the good of the local community. Working together, our partners and staff participate in a range of projects and initiatives that will benefit the Club on a long-term basis.

Charity and pro bono

Supporting charities

Partners and staff work together to support a range of charitable organisations. In addition to making donations from our own charitable trust we encourage active involvement through a range of fund raising activities and lawyers working in a pro bono capacity.
