Social responsibility

Social responsibility and volunteering has always been an integral part of Chambers’ culture. Our members are passionate about serving local communities, improving lives and most importantly, giving back.

As a result, in addition to ad-hoc support and activities, Red Lion Chambers has long standing relationships with a number of key charitable and legal organisations.

Some of those we sponsor and partner with:

  • ELBA

    We partner with the East London Business Alliance (ELBA), a registered charity and non-profit agency that has been supporting the social and economic regeneration of east London for 30 years. ELBA works to build the capacity of local organisations, harnessing the time, skills and expertise of volunteers to deliver a broad range of community interventions. Its focus is community development, employment and education.

  • Clean Break
    Clean Break

    CLEAN BREAK changes lives and changes minds through theatre; on stage, in prison and in the community. It produces ground-breaking plays with women writers and actors at the heart of its work. Founded in 1979 by two women prisoners who believed that theatre could bring the hidden stories of imprisoned women to a wider audience, it is still the only theatre company of its kind remaining true to these roots; inspiring playwrights and captivating audiences with the company’s award-winning plays on the complex theme of women and crime.

  • Young Citizens
    Young Citizens

    Red Lion Chambers is proud to sponsor and support the South of England Young Citizens Mock Trial Competition. A part of our school engagement programme, this focuses on promoting access to the criminal law and courts. 18 heats are run nationally by the Young Citizens. This competition targets diverse students aged 15-18 from a wide range of backgrounds, and provides them with the opportunity to gain experience public speaking and participating in a “real life” Crown Court trial.
