As a leading business and employer in Greater Manchester, Gorvins Solicitors is committed to active and progressive corporate responsibility.
Gorvins has always been very much part of the fabric of the Stockport and wider Greater Manchester and Cheshire communities in which we operate. Our commitment goes way beyond geographic boundaries and includes contributions to market sectors and professional communities, operating in the region.
Our Charity Work
Each year Gorvins selects two charities for whom we raise funds through a range of activities. Selecting the right charities to partner with is very much part of our culture at Gorvins and we are proud that each and every member of staff gets behind the cause to raise funds for such worthwhile causes.
Our 2019 charities are Headway and Epilepsy Action.
Headway is the UK-wide charity that works to improve life after brain injury. Through its network of more than 125 groups and branches across the UK, it provides support, services and information to brain injury survivors, their families and carers, as well as to professionals in the health and legal fields.
Epilepsy Action is a community of people committed to a better life for everyone affected by epilepsy.
They help to provide want high quality, accessible epilepsy healthcare services, so that people with epilepsy have the support they need to manage their condition. They want wider awareness and understanding of epilepsy, so that people living with the condition are treated with fairness and respect.
