Specialist charities and organisations can give clients access to specialist help and support at a crucial time in their life. I sponsor or partner with a number of organisations, to help them in their work, securing justice and helping my clients to rebuild their lives following serious injury.
I am also a health and safety campaigner, and I campaign for change to improve conditions in the workplace to prevent accidents happening.
The London Hazards Centre
The London Hazards Centre was established in 1984 to help Londoners enforce their right to live and work in safe, healthy environments. It works with trade unions, tenants groups and community based campaigns. like the Construction Safety Campaign, the Battersea Crane Disaster Action Group, and through its asbestos support work. It is run by the members who elect the Directors and Trustees at the Annual General Meeting.
I have been a director of the London Hazards Centre for 3 years, campaigning alongside it for safer working environments.

FACK ( Families Against Corporate Killers)
Families against corporate killers - FACK - is a national network campaigning to stop workers and others being killed in preventable incidents and helps bereaved families to get legal help and emotional support.
The campaign is seeking urgent government action to halt the complacency about deaths at work and decent laws with will bring dangerously negligent bosses to justice. FACK wants a review of the way work-related deaths are investigated and the way families are treated. And it believes workers and safety reps must be given more rights to protect themselves against exposure to unacceptable risks to their lives and health.
I support the work of and act for FACK families.

Claire Lomas MBE and Nichols Spinal Injury Foundation
Claire Lomas is a former event rider who became a paraplegic as a result of a riding accident in 2007.In 2012, she finished the London Marathon in 17 days in a robotic suit. She campaigns and raises funds for spinal charities.
I met Claire several years ago when she was giving a talk. At that time, she was exploring the idea of gaining her motorbike licence. Claire and I kept in contact and when she decided to do laps at the British Super Bikes tracks I offered my support.
Claire told me about the work of nsif, a charity committed to funding research and development into curing spinal cord injury. I am delighted to be able to support such a worthwhile charity and would dearly love to see the fantastic work come to fruition in my lifetime.
