Social Impact+

Social Impact+ is our pro bono programme, which sees our staff provide legal and non-legal pro bono support to local social enterprises. Through workshops and 1:1 mentorship we help these organisations grow and develop as they aim to impact critical issues like gender equality, neurodiversity, homelessness and environmental sustainability.

We chose social enterprises as the focus area for our pro bono work because we believe that by using our skills and expertise to help social enterprises grow, we can create long term sustainable impact.

We are currently supporting 30 social enterprises through our workshops, with 15 of those benefitting from additional 1:1 support. To learn more about some of the amazing organisations we are working with, check out these videos.

What is a social enterprise?

So what exactly is a social enterprise? It’s simply an endeavour that aims to improve the world and solve a complex problem. Whether a non-profit, business, or other entity, social enterprises use creative ideas to change lives and better the environment. 

How is William Fry helping?

As a corporate law firm, we have a ton of talented legal and business professionals working hard every day for our clients. We wanted to be able to use our skills, knowledge and experience to make a positive and lasting impact on our community and the world around us, so Social Impact + was born. 

We are delighted to be working with Inner City Enterprise to support local social enterprises by providing workshops and 1:1 mentorship. We will cover areas ranging from Strategy & Branding to corporate governance, compliance, reputation management, employment, recruitment, data protection and more.

 

We're committed to providing support for local social enterprises to create a lasting and positive impact. If you are interested in getting involved and/or would like to put forward a social enterprise for support, please contact Bethany Fiore at 01 489 6420.
