Young Bristol trustee and Burges Salmon senior associate, Jamie Cameron, hosted Young Bristol’s annual AGM in November 2015. Talking about the event, Jamie said:

“It was a real success and it was great to be able to host the night. One of the common themes, when I was chatting to the staff at Young Bristol and the young people and their parents, was how the night felt really special for them because of the venue and the way they were welcomed. The team also felt that being invited was recognition of the work they have been doing – that it really is valued – and that there was a positive message for Young Bristol that Burges Salmon is supporting it. It was great to hear this and it was a reminder of how our in kind support goes a long way beyond the pure cost of the event.”

Anya Mulcahy-Bowman, project development manager, at Barton Hill Settlement said:

"We ran a pilot project called BOOST Finance that explored the potential community and economic benefits of providing a range of financial advice and support services in one space within the Lawrence Hill and Easton communities. The project was evaluated with the support of the Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) and the results compiled into a promotional evaluation report entitled ‘Beyond Crisis’. Burges Salmon’s legal support department very kindly backed the project in printing a professional document that has enabled us to draw attention to the very real circumstances people are facing and when given the right resources, highlights the aspirations held within these communities to want to come together to build a better life. The support Burges Salmon provided the BOOST Finance project was invaluable in getting the findings of the pilot project out to a wider audience."
