Past Partnerships

Thank you to the employees of Irwin Mitchell’s London office for voting to support Family Action’s mentoring service Friendship Works as their 2017 charity partner.

“We are delighted that Irwin Mitchell’s London office staff voted for Family Action’s Friendship Works mentoring service for the Charity of the Year 2017. It was great to be partnered with such a fantastic organisation that provides volunteer mentors to children and young adults who have experienced childhood trauma or disrupted attachments. The staff at Family Action were a delight to deal with and it was wonderful to see on the ground the fabulous work they do. Irwin Mitchell’s London office staff have raised a fantastic £24,000 for the Friendship Works service which will help the charity continue to provide much needed support for vulnerable children and young adults and we are delighted to have achieved such a great result.” Irwin Mitchell.

We are delighted that Family Action’s mentoring service Friendship Works was chosen as Shearman and Sterling’s Charity partner from 2016-2018. Their excellent charity committee organised an incredible calendar of fundraising, which coupled with the generosity of Shearman & Sterling employees, has raised an incredible £45,000 over the partnership. This amount is invaluable to the service, supporting 24 life changing friendships between young people and their dedicated mentors, including recruitment and training of mentors, regular outings, and  dedicated supervision of the friendship.  As well as fundraising, Sherman & Sterling’s partnership has been holistic; supporting Family Action with pro-bono legal support, and have hosted events for our volunteers, creating a fully integrated partnership. We’re so grateful for all the support of everyone at Shearman and Sterling who has supported the partnership
