Trainees at Taylor Vinters are encouraged to challenge themselves with projects outside their day-to-day work. A group of trainees recently set up an ambitious project to raise £5,000 for mental health charities, by running 20 events in 20 months – timed to coincide with their qualification as solicitors.
CSR:2020 was born out of a desire to improve mental health and wellbeing, not only in the local and national community, but also within the Taylor Vinters tribe. After pitching to the firm’s supportive CSR committee, the group launched the project in January 2019 with the first of many fundraising and educational activities.
Charities we support
The trainees chose three charities that focus on mental health and well-being. The group believes mental health is an important and often overlooked issue in society, including in office environments which can sometimes be stressful.
