In 2015 Turbervilles Solicitors decided that we wanted to collaborate with some key local charities that offer invaluable support to the local community. Having had various dealings with our neighbours at Hillingdon Carers we decided to become partners by supporting what they do and offering services to assist the carers and volunteers.
The London Borough of Hillingdon has around 25,000 carers, which represents around 10% of the boroughs population. These carers are supporting a loved one’s on an unpaid basis, this is where Hillingdon Carers service is valuable as it offers these individuals support and guidance and sometimes just some respite with others in the same situation.
Local community and voluntary groups make our communities stronger and make an invaluable contribution to the lives of the people they serve. As a responsible business we think it’s important, where we can, to support organisations that are local to us.
We are extremely excited by the new partnership that we have forged with Hillingdon Carers. Our sponsorship of their regular carer meetings is just one area that we have been able to help. However commitment means more than money and we are underlining this by making our staff available to both the carers themselves and staff members of Hillingdon Carers to provide advice and information when it is needed. In this way we can provide genuine practical and real support to the work of the organisation and are really looking forward to the development of the partnership in the weeks and months to come.
