Community & Pro bono (CSR)
At Ridgemont, we believe in the power of giving back to our community. We understand that our success is directly linked to the well-being of the communities where we operate.
As well as improving community relations, we encourage our employees to get involved in community service and make a difference in the lives of those around us. We believe CSR helps encourage personal and professional development. We include our employees in decision making about CSR activities, such as:
- Supporting their chosen charities
- Encourage employees to volunteer for community activities
- Providing employees paid time off for volunteering
The importance of giving back to our community through volunteering is another important pillar for us. We understand that volunteering is not only beneficial for the community, but it also enriches the lives of our employees. That’s why we encourage our team members to get involved in community service and make a difference in the lives of those around us.
We recently took part in volunteering at a park near our office whereby we helped pruning, trimming and maintaining the beautiful gardens.
We’re proud to support local organisations and causes that align with our values and mission.
Tunbridge Wells Youth Football Club
We are beyond excited to be the main sponsor for the ‘Ridgemont Pavilion’, the brand-new clubhouse for Tunbridge Wells Youth Football Club. The Club was formed in 1995 and is a key part of the local Tunbridge Wells community. Players can join from as young as reception and teams are run right through to under 18’s with a strong girl and ladies’ section.
Ridgemont’s very own Managing Director, John Wallace, was born and grew up in Tunbridge Wells, “I am very grateful that Ridgemont has been given the opportunity to support the club. It’s really exciting to see the club progress and the amazing impact the new clubhouse, and those who work there, will have on the lives of the club’s players”.
Ridgemont believes in the importance of self-development and education, which is why this project really stood out for us. We look forward to enabling youths to develop their skills, improve wellbeing, have fun, and build team spirit.
Ridgemont are fortunate to be in a position where we can give back to our community by providing legal services on a pro bono basis to charities and not-for-profit organisations.
Recent pro bono work includes advising a charity on dilapidations issues relating to their London head office and advising a Bristol-based charity on the eviction of licensees.
