Digby Brown support mental health charities across Scotland
For the last three years, each of our seven offices across Scotland have nominated a local charity to support and we have been proud to support charities such as Cash for Kids, Fresh Start, Food Train Dundee, MacMillan Cancer Support and Finding Your Feet - to name just a few.
This year we have done something a little different and each of our offices have chosen a local mental health charity to support for the upcoming year.
Considering the type of work we do – personal injury, employment, family law – we help people who are going through a very difficult and often traumatic time in their life. This can often have a knock on impact on their mental health and we are proud to support mental health charities that are helping improve people’s wellbeing.
Glasgow - Brothers in Arms
Brothers in Arms offer support to men, of any age, who are down or in crisis and empower them to ask for help when they need it, without feeling a failure if they do.
