Sparke Helmore Lawyers is pleased to release its In Kind social sustainability report for the 2017/2018 financial year.
The Report takes a look at our people's involvement in community activities as well as their fantastic work towards achieving the National Pro Bono Aspirational Target.
During the financial year, the firm continued to provide legal assistance at reduced rates or no cost to charitable and not-for-profit organisations as well as referred individuals, through its Pro Bono Program. In Kind looks at many of the pro bono and community activities we've been involved in, such as the Sparke Helmore Newcastle City Triathlon, various wills clinincs and work with our national charity partners, including Thriving Communities Partnership, NCARA and the Usman Khawaja Foundation.
We are also proud to have exceeded the National Pro Bono Aspirational Target again, providing 35.2 hours of pro bono legal assistance per lawyer and a total of 12,157 pro bono hours across the country.
