About

Our Mission

At RJS Solicitors we take our social responsibility seriously and actions speak louder than words. We set up the RJS Foundation to make a real difference by supporting charities and not-for-profit good causes across our local communities.

We work with like-minded partners towards our goal of helping our communities and economy prosper. The grants we award will address the most relevant concerns that the Board, in their absolute discretion, determine.

Our people play their part too!

Foundation Journey 

The Foundation is the focus of corporate social responsibility for RJS Solicitors and reflects RJS Solicitors values and culture of contribution. Grants are made possible by RJS Solicitors and the donations it may receive.

All operating costs associated with running the Foundation are covered by RJS Solicitors, so every penny available goes to the good causes it supports.

Today, the combined philanthropic efforts of both RJS Solicitors and the RJS Foundation will create opportunities for people to believe, inspire and change.
