Law firm Shoosmiths is pleased to announce its 2023/2024 office charity partners. Three of our locations are continuing their current charity partnerships (*).

Our 2023/2024 charity partners are:

Urban Roots is a community led environmental charity working across the Southside of Glasgow. It empowers local people to make choices and lifestyle changes that are beneficial to them, their communities and the environment.


Martin House Children’s Hospice provides family-led hospice care free of charge for children and young people with life-limiting illnesses. Our funds will be ringfenced for bereavement services that the charity provides to families.


The Single Homeless Project is a London-based charity that works to prevent homelessness and help vulnerable and socially excluded people to transform their lives. It does this by providing support and accommodation, promoting wellbeing, enhancing opportunity, and being a voice for change. 


Odd Arts uses theatre to challenge inequalities and increase opportunities for people facing the greatest level of discrimination and disadvantage.

Milton Keynes

The Winter Night Shelter Milton Keynes helps many different people at their point of crisis. It supports rough sleepers, sofa surfers, people in emergency accommodation or temporary housing, those who need support with their tenancies, anyone at risk of homelessness and others who are vulnerable. 


Cynthia Spencer Hospice provides specialist palliative care services for West Northamptonshire. Our funds will be used to support its Wellbeing@Cynthia Spencer programme which enables patients and their families to maintain their quality of life, emotional and mental health, physical function and independence for as long as possible. 


The Duane Spencer Trust operating as the Spencer Trust supports the varying needs of the LGBTQ+ community in the East Midlands. Its mission is to bring the Nottingham LGBTQ+ community together in order to empower, build resilience and promote emotional wellbeing; enabling people to live safely and openly in the community.


Roundabout*, South Yorkshire’s local youth housing charity provides shelter, support and life-skills to young people aged 16-24 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.


Sophie’s Legacy supports families locally who end up in hospital with their child. Our funds will help support and implement the changes Sophie asked for before she passed, such as a play specialist seven days a week in hospitals, improvements to food for children in hospital and catering for parents when staying with their children.

Thames Valley

Daisy’s Dream based in Berkshire, supports children and young people who are facing, or have experienced, the death of someone close. Research has shown that without the right support, children who experience a significant loss or life-limiting illness of a parent or sibling are more likely to experience future mental health, social or educational difficulties. The charity’s service offers the time and support needed by families to learn to cope with the changing dynamics of their life, and ultimately move forwards in a positive way.
