Corporate social responsibility is about much more than our commitment to upholding the highest ethical standards in providing legal services to our clients. Our corporate social responsibility programme supports a wide range of projects and activities within the community.
We recognise the importance of education from early childhood through to university studies, and also the positive effects which education can have on the social and economic conditions in the community. The basis for this belief is our own reliance on our highly educated and skilled group of employees.
Doing Business Responsibly
Corporate social responsibility is about much more than our commitment to upholding the highest ethical standards in providing legal services to our clients, it’s about making a long lasting positive impact in the community in which we operate and on the people we work with.
Our corporate social responsibility programme supports a wide range of projects and activities within the community. Through this programme we are seeking to develop a thoughtful and responsible approach to our corporate citizenship, which we believe aligns with our core values and which will maximise the positive impact we can have. Every member of our team is encouraged to take an active part in the programme and to view every day as an opportunity to make a difference.
Every year the Calcutta Run is held to raise money for two amazing charities being Goal and the Fr. Peter McVerry Trust.
Flynn O’Driscoll LLP enters a team annually and each participant raises a significant amount of money for the causes.
Supporting St. Audoens National School
Flynn O’Driscoll LLP has been a long time supporter of the wonderful work done by staff and volunteers of St. Audoens National School in Cook Street in Dublin 8.
We are proud of our continued association with St. Audoens. Members of our team have a strong relationship with the school and take part in a weekly breakfast and reading club in the school premises
This initiative provides a private and unintimidating setting in which the children are assisted and actively encouraged by volunteers in improving their reading skills.
Literacy is a major part of not only the legal world but of everyday life and it has been proven that, as well as providing assistance to the pupils, achieving higher literacy levels will improve the competitiveness and economic growth of a community.
BMW Clontarf Half Marathon
The annual Joe Duffy BMW Clontarf half marathon raises funds for the Irish Heart Foundation; each year the firm enters a team to participate in the event to raise funds for the charity.
We actively volunteer with “FLAC Rathmines”; this provides us with an opportunity to offer free legal advice to members of the public who may otherwise not have access to such legal expertise. Free legal advice is given at this centre every Wednesday evening from 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm.
Corporate Social Responsibility programme
As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility programme, we became involved in and had the pleasure of assisting in the production of the short film “Coming Home”.
Coming Home is an uplifting and enlightening story of one woman’s journey to recovery from breast cancer. It evolved out of a short story short-listed for the Hennessy Literary Awards by Anne Chambers who wrote the screenplay.
Coming Home is directed by Lisa Mulcahy and stars the Tony- nominated and IFTA award-winning actress Dawn Bradfield, supported by Simon O’Gorman, Maria McDermottroe, Theo Kirwan, Joey O’Sullivan and Holly Gregg.
It is produced by Tile Films and funded by Nawrik, a not-for-profit family trust.
