              DWF Foundation

              The DWF Foundation, founded by DWF LLP has the sole aim of providing funds, resources and support to help our communities achieve their full potential.

              At DWF, we are determined to ‘live’ our values through our day-to-day actions and behaviours. The values we share help to define and reinforce our culture - the way we do things. Our values underpin not only our culture, but they also set the future course that we want to take as a business. The launch of the DWF Foundation marks a significant step in our journey to develop a culture of contribution.

              The Foundation builds on our existing community activity in a focused and strategic way and demonstrates that when we all work together we can make a significant, positive impact on the communities in which we live and work.

              The pillars of the Foundation are: Homelessness, Health & Wellbeing, Employability and Education and within these the Foundation has been set up to particularly help with initiatives that develop and improve local communities by:

              • Tackling a specific community issue;
              • Helping voluntary and community groups become more effective and efficient;
              • Encouraging the involvement in the community of those too often excluded; and
              • Enabling young people to develop skills for the benefit of the community.

              Our vision is to encourage all our people to work together as a catalyst for change. Each of our offices has a dedicated team who are committed to our corporate responsibilities. Through the DWF Foundation we hope to build upon the excellent work that they already do with our local communities and charities.
