We encourage employees and members to cycle to Chambers by providing storage facilities, as well as grants and loans with which to purchase a bike.
We securely recycle paper, computer equipment and ink cartridges, while cutting down on waste by minimising paper use and banning the use of paper and plastic cups. We actively encourage our members and staff to recycle throughout Chambers.
We have installed sensor lighting throughout our building and actively seek out energy efficient products and services.
We work with the Bar Pro Bono unit to provide legal representation to those with deserving cases who cannot afford to pay for our services. We actively encourage our barristers to use their professional legal knowledge to benefit those who are disadvantaged, under privileged or have difficulties in accessing legal advice.
We take part in the annual London Legal Walk to raise funds for the London Legal Support Trust, the Free Representation Unit and the Bar Pro Bono Unit. These bodies make a valuable contribution to preventing homelessness, resolving debt problems, gaining care for the elderly and disabled, and fighting exploitation.
We also support the CHICKS children’s charity, which provides free breaks for disadvantaged children all over the UK.
Please contact our Chambers Director, Vincent Denham, if you have any suggestions of charities you would like 42BR to support.
