Because it matters to you, it matters to Digby Brown

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 2016, we were named Corporate Social Responsibility Firm of the Year at the Law Awards 2016 and the Scott & Co. Legal Awards have recognised our work in this area as well – Digby Brown won the Community Contribution Award in 2014, 2015 and 2018.

Winner at Scott and Co Legal Awards 2018

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.

Bobath Scotland

Bobath Scotland is a charity which provides therapy for people livng with cerebral palsy. We support Bobath 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 are supporting the fifth annual conference to be held on Thursday 4th October 2018 at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

Every year this event is a real team effort between staff members and partners of Digby Brown, Clinical and support staff at the Spinal Injuries unit at the Southern General Hospital and staff and members of Spinal Injuries Scotland. The event has now raised over £600,000 to support this inspirational organisation.
