Our commitment to charities

As a firm that represents a number of profoundly disabled people, whose lives are often irrevocably changed, we understand the value of non-profit organisations who are able to help them. That’s why we’re proud to support a number of different charities through donations to ensure they can continue their important work.

There are a vast number of people who suffer with the consequences of serious diseases, who may not have the benefit of compensation to help them with all of their needs. NHS and Local Authority provision is often limited, and charities can often make up the shortfall by providing individuals and families with care (such as rehabilitation services or respite), equipment and financial or emotional support.

Who we have helped

Our team has been able to donate significant amounts to a number of charities, including Meningitis Now, The Meningitis Research Foundation and other non-profits who ensure that those with a severe disability (and their families) get the help and support they need.

Meningitis Research Foundation had this to say about a recent donation:

“Those who contact our support team tell us it is vital for their recovery and helps them feel less isolated. We are very grateful to Royds Withy King for this donation, which will enable us to provide invaluable support and an understanding listening ear for individuals and families affected by meningitis when they need it most.”

Contact had this to say:

We want to say a huge thank you to Royds Withy King for their generous donation to Contact, helping us support even more families with disabled children across the UK with information and advice when they need it most”

Meningitis Now were very pleased to receive their donation:

“We are absolutely delighted that Royds Withy King have chosen to support Meningitis Now. Support from our partners is vital in helping us to rebuild the futures of people who have been affected by meningitis in the South West.”

Dr Ron Daniels, CEO of the UK Sepsis Trust, also had this to say:

“It’s the generosity of supporters like Royds Withy King that allows us to continue the fight against sepsis. The funds they have raised will bring us closer to our goal of saving thousands of lives all over the UK by ending preventable deaths from sepsis.”
