Working with key Scottish charities

For many years, we have been working closely with a number of charities to support them both financially and practically. We are proud to say that as Digby Brown grows, so too does our ethos of giving something back and playing an active role in communities around Scotland.

In 2019 we were again awarded the Community Contribution Award and the Scottish Legal Awards - also won in 2014, 2015 & 2018.  Our work was also recognised in 2016 when we were named Corporate Social Responsibility Firm of the Year at the Law Awards.

Below is just a flavour of the inspirational charities and organisations we support and some of the work we do together:

Asbestos Action

The charity supports sufferers of asbestos-related conditions and their families across Scotland with access to legal and welfare advice as well as running carers and support groups.   

Digby Brown colleagues from our Dundee office and across the country have taken part in a raft of fundraising activities and we supported the charity in raising the profile of asbestos related conditions and the dangers of asbestos.

Clydebank Asbestos Group

Our Industrial Disease team at Digby Brown has close links with Clydebank Asbestos Group, a Scottish charity set up in 1992 to help asbestos sufferers and bereaved relatives.

Cerebral Palsy Scotland

Cerebral Palsy Scotland, formerly known as Bobath Scotland, is a charity which provides therapy for people living with cerebral palsy. We support the charity in a number of ways including their first ever World Cerebral Palsy Day conference which took place in October 2014 and was attended by over 200 people. Digby Brown has supported this conference every year since.
