Gillespie Macandrew is a Scottish law firm with significant experience in assisting charities, trustees and not-for-profit organisations. The company was a Corporate Partner of Children in Scotland between 2013-21.

Along with Hunters Residential, Gillespie Macandrew donates a percentage of their pre-tax profits to specific Scottish charities, and Children in Scotland was one.

But Gillespie Macandrew didn't just support us with a financial contribution, it went further than that. In addition they:

  • Provided our members with a free legal helpline
  • Delivered a range of legal workshops, free to our members
  • Supported our annual Members' Network event
  • Exhibited at our Annual Conferences.

Gillespie Macandrew employees also have one paid ‘charity day’ per year which they use for volunteering, and 2017 saw a member of staff from the firm use this day to help at one of our Food Families Futures clubs.

Chris West, Gillespie Macandrew’s CEO, said:

“The reality, of course, is that we could operate commercially without committing to a CSR programme, but these initiatives help ensure we maintain some sense of perspective. It helps to define us as a business and shape the way we approach our working lives.”

“All businesses owe society more than simply the economic benefits generated as a result of paying staff and remunerating partners. We operate in a wider society and we are also mindful that not everyone has the same opportunities or benefits.”
