Corporate Social Responsibility

Serious about Corporate Social Responsibility

Here at Devonshires, we take Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) very seriously, and our partners, staff, clients, and charities continue to demonstrate goodwill, generosity, and dedication to the CSR schemes that we operate.

From taking part in sporting events to hosting a private cinema screening for our charities, our work is ultimately aimed at supporting the outstanding and invaluable work that they do.

If you’d like any further details of our CSR initiatives (or if you’d like to suggest a CSR project we might take on or provide support to) please get in touch with our team.

Our chosen charities 

Birmingham Central Foodbank – a part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. The foodbank provides nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people in Birmingham facing hardship and food insecurity.

Their aim is to make sure the people in their communities have the opportunities, skills and confidence to build a better future for themselves.

Our workplace

We continue to facilitate our successful annual Employment Day and Work Placement Schemes, which we operate in collaboration with a number of our housing clients including Notting Hill, Swan and the members of the Housing Associations’ Legal Alliance.

Our Employment Days are aimed at helping residents become ‘work ready’. Our staff run a series of training sessions followed by mock interviews and then feedback to participants with hints and suggestions about what they did well and where they might improve how they come across at interview. Then, under our Work Placement Scheme, a number of participants join us through our six-monthly paid internships.

Our commitments

Devonshires has signed both the Greener Litigation Pledge and the BPF Net Zero Pledge. We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our practice.
