Travers Smith LLP

In October 2016, SHP embarked on a two year Charity of the Year partnership with Travers Smith LLP, a leading corporate law firm based in Farringdon.  

The firm is working with SHP to develop a programme of opportunities for staff and partners, such as mentoring and volunteering with staff and clients to improve SHP's green spaces.  Travers Smith will also provide financial support and engage their 550 staff in a range of fundraising activities on our behalf.

The financial support provided by Travers Smith LLP will be used in part to fund a new post within SHP dedicated to helping the charity's clients take the final step towards independent living. Funding the post will help the charity to support up to 80 more people every year to gain lasting independence.

Travers Smith LLP CSR partner Daniel Gerring said: “We are delighted to be working with Single Homeless Project for the next two years. We have already worked with SHP to identify a number of opportunities for our staff to get involved with their work and we look forward to developing many more fundraising and volunteering opportunities as the partnership progresses."

Travers Smith LLP is part of the "Silver Circle" of leading UK law firms and is one of the oldest in the City of London, having been founded in 1810.

Safestore is delighted to partner with Single Homeless Project (SHP) and we look forward to a positive relationship over the coming year. SHP does fantastic work to prevent homelessness and help vulnerable and socially excluded people transform their lives.

Wanjiku Calver, from Safestore, said “We hope that the donated storage room will give SHP the space to focus on their core activities without the added cost of storing donations.

“The charity is an integral source of support for people in crisis, moving them from homelessness towards independence and employment and we are happy to be able to play a part in the charity’s ongoing journey.”
