Corporate Social Responsibility
turpin barker armstrong recognises our responsibility to the community in which we operate and to the environment
What we do has an effect on our clients, their businesses and the wider community in which we are based, not just in the short term. It is our responsibility as a firm, and as individuals, to work in a way that is in the best interests of everyone, now and into the future.
We are committed to our responsibility to the community in which we operate and to the environment. It is our policy to make a positive impact on the lives on the people within our firm as well of the wider community, of which we are part.
This is achieved through providing pro bono accountancy, advisory and insolvency services, charitable works and supporting education in our local community.
We encourage everyone within our firm to participate in and engage with our charitable endeavours.
Over the years we have supported the following charities:
- St Raphael’s Hospice
- MS Society
- The Children's Trust
- The Liam Charity
- The Down Syndrome Association
- Sutton Night Watch
- Circus Starr
- Malawi Bail Project
- Sutton Women's Centre
- South East Cancer Help Centre
We provide pro bono accountancy and advisory services to a range of local voluntary organisations and charities. We also offer pro bono insolvency advice to individuals in financial distress who may otherwise be unable to obtain professional advice.
Many people in financial distress do not know where to turn for advice and we are always conscious of the issues this can cause in their personal lives. We are regularly approached by business owners and individuals with personal debts who need help and with our knowledge and expertise we can offer initial guidance and the clarity they need. In many cases we do not feel that our formal engagement is appropriate or feasible for the client but having taken that first step to get advice we offer pro bono advice to ensure that they know where to go next to address their difficulties. We also utilise our vast networks of contacts to support us as and when appropriate. We are all aware that debt problems and mental health challenges often run side by side and at turpin barker armstrong we will continue to support those in need of help
We recognise the importance of leading the way in adopting best environmental practice, taking responsibility for our actions and striving to achieve challenging reductions in emissions and waste. This is being achieved by following the concept of “3R”, reduce, reuse, recycle.
