Community Connect at Clayton Utz
Karen Ingram, Partner, Clayton Utz
How does Community Connect work at Clayton Utz?
At Clayton Utz our Community Connect Program works in two ways. The first is a volunteering capacity. So, the bodies on the ground, where we can actually engage with our community partners in a physical sense and provide support to them. It's not just legal support but in a way that all of our partners and staff can be involved. And the second way that we realise we can support our community partners is through the Foundation giving and charitable grants, to enable them to continue to do the good work that they do to support our communities.
Can you tell us about the Community Connect committees?
Each of the offices across Clayton Utz nationally has established its own Community Connect Committee and the committees are made up of dedicated members of the Clayton Utz team, employees and partners, who have a specific and particular passion in wanting to have a hands-on involvement assisting our community partners providing services to the areas in which they work.
