Our lawyers and business services teams are currently working from home in accordance with the Government’s guidance.

With this in mind, and to allow us to continue to provide the best service to our clients and business partners, unless absolutely necessary and advised by your lawyer that hard copy documents are required, we ask that all correspondence and documentation is sent to us electronically. If for any reason you do need to send hard copies, please discuss with your Royds Withy King contact first. We can make appropriate arrangements on a case-by-case basis and, whilst permitted by the Government, will still be able to access hard copy documents in our offices.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Our London Charity – Crisis

In 21st century Britain no one should have to face the traumatic experience of homelessness, yet an estimated 236,000 people are currently living some form of homelessness.

Crisis - Royds Withy King Charity

Crisis is the national charity for homeless people: through 50 years of pioneering research and working side-by-side with thousands of homeless people, we know what it will take to make sure everybody in Britain has a place to call home.

Each year, Crisis supports over 10,000 people at 11 Skylight centres across England, Scotland and Wales. At each Skylight, they help members find and sustain housing and employment, gain new qualifications and rebuild their confidence and mental wellbeing.

In 2017-18, Crisis was able to support 784 members into work and help 832 members find stable and secure accommodation. 1,432 certificates and qualifications were awarded to members over the year, and over 4,100 guests attended our annual Christmas centres, receiving food, vital healthcare services, advice and companionship.

In addition to support for charities in 2017-2018, the firm also grants two working days a year for staff to volunteer in a charity of community organisation of their choosing. To find out more about Royds Withy King and its support for charities and the community, please click here.
