We're built on social justice values, so it’s no surprise that we enjoy giving back
We have more offices than any other law firm in Australia, and one of the defining features of our company is our relationship with the local communities in which we operate.
We encourage and support that relationship through sponsorship activities, volunteering activities and pro bono legal support, as well as giving staff the opportunity to donate a portion of their wage to our Staff Giving Program, which goes towards funding local projects throughout Australia.
Slater and Gordon also gives back through its commitment to philanthropic activity, having established a Community Fund in 2001 and an Asbestos Research Fund in 2004.
In 2014 Slater and Gordon broadened its commitment to achieving outcomes for people suffering disease and disability by establishing the Health Projects and Research Fund.
Our community fund
We're proud to offer philanthropic support to individuals and groups for community projects. The Slater and Gordon Community Fund is a philanthropic fund which offers grants to community groups in three key areas of focus.
The Slater and Gordon Health Projects and Research Fund
The Slater and Gordon Health Projects and Research Fund is a philanthropic grants initiative focussed on improving care and treatment for people with asbestos related illnesses, occupation caused cancers or with significant disability caused by a catastrophic injury.
Applications for the 2018 round of funding are now open.
Our pro bono work
Every member of our firm is passionate about protecting the rights of Australians. That's why we regularly commit to legal work that is of special public interest where the firm derives no direct financial benefit.
We're proud to say that many of our staff actively participate in their local community and we support and encourage them by offering volunteering leave.
