At Edward Hands & Lewis we are committed to playing a role in our local community, we understand that as a business we have grown from the local communities where our offices are based and want to make sure we are putting back into them.

We purposely go out into the community trying to create long lasting partnerships so we can work closely with other local businesses, local schools and nurseries, local councils, clubs and societies. We understand that these people and groups make up the community and where we can offer help we most definitely will. Our Community Projects Manager Sian Phillips sets up and coordinates opportunities for each branch to be able to support their local community. This involves;

  • Charity Work
  • Volunteering
  • Educational support
  • Competitions
  • Discount for local residents
  • Building connections with local businesses
  • Supporting local clubs and societies
  • Creating relationships with local councils

Here are a few examples of how we have helped our local communities so far;

Our solicitors have taken time out to visit schools to talk to young people about pathways into law. We want to show our support to aspiring solicitors and have created a “Student Support Programme” for students in local universities. This involves our solicitors mentoring students and showing support throughout their time at university.

We provide support to young people who are preparing to find a job, help them prep their C.Vs and participate in mock interviews which helps to prepare them for any future interviews they may have.

We understand that we can support children’s development from a young age and have provided local nurseries with story sacks to nurture communication and language skills. Following this we set up a competition for parents to grow a sunflower at home with their children, nurseries across Leicestershire got involved.

We love to get involved with the whole community and always have a stall at any local fetes and carnivals. Building trust with our local communities is a core value for our company and we pride ourselves on developing and maintaining excellent relationships both locally and nationally.
