In 2020 we celebrated five years of working with Burges Salmon. The national law firm have been working with our Bristol Hub on the Social Innovation Programme since 2015.

Burges Salmon facilitate training for the programme, supporting the student participants to develop professional skills; they provide mentors for each team, allowing both students and mentors to develop as they produce a worthwhile report for their partner organisation; and they sponsor the programme with a Platinum package.

“SIP supports our Responsible Business approach in terms of making a difference in the community, supporting an inclusive and engaging workplace for our people (particularly for the mentors)… It’s a win-win-win! Bristol Hub helps us deliver on our place-based approach for responsible business and enables us to leverage impact. This is so much more than just providing funding we can increase our community reach and therefore the positive impact. It builds on existing community relationships and enables new ones.

– Kirsty Green-Mann, Head of Corporate Responsibility
