Delivering a valued contribution to the wider local community
At Vail Williams, we believe that creating a great place to work breeds a positive, supportive and nurturing culture.
Core to achieving this is our approach to corporate responsibility (CSR), which enables us to positively impact the communities in which we operate.
VW Care, as we like to call it, supports our purpose and values, and allows us to put something meaningful back into the communities in which we work.

Charity of the year
We are delighted to be supporting registered charity, Prior’s Court.
A residential school, training and development centre, Prior’s Court provides support for young people aged between 5-25 who are severely affected by autism.
Each young person who attends Prior’s Court is funded through their Local Authority or by Social Services.
Whilst this covers their core care provision and day-to-day educational needs, as well as the highly trained staff who support them, it does not fund additional initiatives that enable their young people to live fulfilling and inclusive lives.
Through a variety of fundraising initiatives, from sporting fundraisers to quizzes and specific volunteering opportunities, we pledge our support to help Prior’s Court go above and beyond day-to-day care, encouraging independence of the young people they work with, whilst also offering vocational opportunities.
The best thing about the relationship with Vail Williams is that it is truly multifaceted. They have provided pro bono support helping us to search for our much needed second site, volunteered in our Horticultural Zone, helping to ensure we can continue to deliver regular sessions for our young people and they have fundraised towards our Health and Wellbeing Hub, which opened in 2021.
It means so much to us for their employees to get involved with so many aspects of life at Prior’s Court and to see and really understand the complexities of severe autism. We can’t thank them enough.
Supporting a sustainable future
We recognise the important responsibility we have in minimising our impact on the environment.
That’s why our regional sustainability champions help us to run a variety of firmwide initiatives to help us operate as efficiently as possible – for the benefit of our clients, our people and the communities in which we operate.
This includes our Grow Green programme with Ripple Africa and Fruitful Office where for every fruit basket our firm consumes, a fruit tree is planted in Malawi – amounting to some 240 trees last year.
