WBD action case study: helping families through difficult times

26 Nov 2020
After two years of fundraising, in 2019 our Bristol Office reached its ambition of raising £80,000 for St Peter's Hospice. Bristol's only adult hospice caring for 2,000 patients every year. Our support for St Peter's Hospice was inspired by the memory of one of our Bristol based partners, Robert Pope, who passed away in April 2016 and was cared for by the hospice at the end of his life.

WBD action case study: firmwide support for foodbanks

26 Nov 2020
In August 2017, I read an online article about the West End Foodbank in Newcastle. The article highlighted the fact that this foodbank, close to our office, was the most utilised in England, and that the demand for food grew substantially during school holidays. I was aware that there were foodbanks throughout the UK but had no real idea of how they operated, who used them, how we could donate, and how donations are utilised. The article stated that without school meals or breakfast clubs, many children would not receive a hot meal during school holidays, and parents were struggling to feed their families.

15 Jul 2020
Nowhere is this more evident than in the legal profession – here at Womble Bond Dickinson, our Knowledge Management (KM) team found itself at the very centre of a whirlwind of dramatic change as decades (in some cases, centuries) of established work practices have morphed and flexed, virtually overnight. COVID-19 disruption has supercharged KM – imagine an accelerated 'dog year' model, driving through years of planned change compressed into a few weeks or days.

Growing up in a violent home can really have an effect on a child’s future. Despite what my family went through I always knew I didn’t want to be one of those children and I wanted to make a good life for myself and do well in my career etc.
