Our commitment to you
We are proud supporters of our community and dedicated to lending our time to local projects, whether we are getting hands on or raising money so our charity partners can continue to provide necessary services to those who need them. We have long standing relationships with several organisations but we are always keen to hear about new initiatives that may need a helping hand.
Our CSR Committee is led by Partner, Simon Bellm, who is supported by representatives across the firm to work alongside charities and come up with fundraising ideas everyone can get involved in.
How we've helped
During the 2021-22 academic year, DMH Stallard partnered up with accountancy firm Kreston Reeves to deliver a mentoring initiative to students at Portslade Aldridge Community Academy (PACA). The programme is called Dare to Dream, and it is a Love Local Jobs Foundation
initiative. The foundation is a community interest company with a vision to raise the life and career aspirations of the next generations across Sussex.
Dare to Dream aims to develop vital life skills, boost self-confidence, and help the next generation realise their potential and is spearheaded by local celebrity Jack ‘the Lad’ Hayes. Mentors from DMH Stallard and Kreston Reeves worked with Jack throughout the school year, giving presentations to the year 10 PACA year group and mentoring a select group of students. Read more
A team of supporters from our Guildford office recently spent the day at Cherry Trees Children’s Hospice
, clearing their garden of leaves, furniture, rubbish and much more besides to make way for a brand new sensory garden. This will allow children with complex disabilities to play as they deserve.
Debbie Boulter, Community and Events Lead at Cherry Trees, says:
“A huge thank you to the team at DMH Stallard for an amazing effort assisting Cherry Trees for a huge clear up in preparation for a garden transformation for our children and young people to have fun in." Read more
We organised a clothing drive to support two London based charities, Suited & Booted
and Smart Works
. The event was organised to collect clothing from members of the firm which could be donated to unemployed people, supported by the charities, to provide professional office clothing for job interviews. We collected a total of 13 boxes of clothing including suits, shirts, blazers, dresses and accessories as part of this initiative. Read more
75 staff from across our business have taken part in two treks in the past year, covering the distance from St Catherine’s Hospice
to the North Pole and back, and from the Hospice to Tokyo, by running, walking, cycling and many other activities and logging their combined progress to cover the distance. The money raised from our efforts went towards the building of their new hospice.
Other charities we have supported include:
We also have a long standing relationship with IntoUniversity
, a social mobility charity that provides local learning centres where young people are inspired to achieve. We have supported Into
University by providing volunteers for their Corporate Mentoring Scheme. Here, our staff volunteer their time to attend one to one meetings with young people that are in their final year of sixth form/college education as they apply for and attend university, helping to guide them through that process and the many important decisions associated with it.
