We are pleased to announce that as part of our ongoing charity and social responsibility as a firm, Douglas Wemyss Solicitors has become a member of the Leicestershire & Rutland ProHelp group.

We are proud to be a part of a local organisation helping local communities and charities access professional services on a charitable probono basis.  Our solicitors will offer and provide a FREE service for those organisations accessing ProHelp.

ProHelp is a group made of a wide range of professional firms who are committed to providing advice and strategic support for free to local voluntary and community organisations for one-off projects. The group as a whole support over 50 projects each year.

We join 36 other member firms involved from across many sectors including other solicitors, IT consultants, PR and marketing specialists, surveyors, architects, HR consultants and accountants.

Katharine Lightbown, ProHelp coordinator adds her thanks to the firm:

“We’re very pleased that Douglas Wemyss have come on board and have already picked up their first project supporting a small not-for-profit tennis club with their lease. ProHelp supports a wide variety of groups across Leicestershire and Rutland – everything from small grassroots volunteer-led groups through to large registered charities – all of whom cannot otherwise afford professional fees.”
