Our purpose guides what we do. We strive to help those affected by injury – together. And the together part of our purpose is delivered by the collaborative working partnerships we build with like-minded organisations.
We believe that working together enables us to do more to help people who have sustained an injury and their families, creating better outcomes and lives for all affected by injury.
We’re proud to be founder members in 4 Trauma 4 Patients, a collaborative partnership with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Charity in Birmingham. 4Trauma 4Patients aims to provide all-round support to patients and their families. Whether it’s access to benefits and welfare advice to alleviate financial pressure, getting legal assistance, or emotional support for family and friends, we and our partners are here to help. In line with our purpose, the partnership supports those with an injury but also those without, ensuring all those affected by injury access all the support they need and signposting them to support organisations and relevant charities in their local area.

Spinal Injuries Association
We’re one of only a very small number of legal businesses who are Trusted Legal Partners of the Spinal Injuries Association in more than one region. We work hand in hand with the charity to support those affected by spinal cord injury in the North East, Yorkshire and the South West.
But our support doesn’t end there. We're also the lead partners in the charity’s annual Gunpowder Ball in London in November, where we’ll be working with the SIA team to highlight the issues that matter to those living fulfilled lives after an SCI, including accessibility and care.
What’s more, we’ve also developed a series of Snapshots of SCI in partnership with the SIA, which highlight the impact of SCI on all those around the person who has sustained the injury – in order to promote the need to support all those affected by injury, not just the injured person. We believe this leads to better outcomes for those who have been injured, a view shared by our SIA partners and reflected in our joint Snapshots campaign.
As experts in brain injury, we work closely with Headway nationally and with local Headway groups to ensure those who have sustained a brain injury have the support and access to services that they need. We’ll continue to work with the charity to campaign for improvements to help those living with brain injury to live fulfilled lives and achieve their best possible outcome.
Our lived experience content, including our Brain Injury Bites podcast and blogs from former CFG client Anna Leggett, as well as Brooke Trotter and Michelle Munt, are made available to all those living with a brain injury to guide them through any issues to challenges they may face, including those who don’t have a legal claim.
We’re partners of the charity Steelbones, which supports people who have undergone an amputation. Members of the charity provide lived experience content which we host on our website to support others living life after an amputation, and CFG colleagues also volunteer regularly to help this small charity continue to deliver its vital services for all those who have sustained an amputation.
We are long-term supporters of the road safety charity RoadPeace, which works with those who have been bereaved and those who have sustained a serious injury in road crashes.
Working hand in hand with RoadPeace’s West Midlands group, we funded and developed a powerful anthology, Heartbreak, Hope and a Call for Change, which gave a voice to those who have been bereaved and enabled them to share their stories with others in a similar position.
And our support goes further. We’re also working closely with the RoadPeace team and campaigning on key issues around road safety – ensuring we not only help the charity and those who have been bereaved or injured but that we work to improve road safety in the UK and ensure that fewer people experience bereavement or injury in the future.
Road Victims Trust
We’re proud to be supporters of the Road Victims Trust, which supports those who have experienced bereavement or injury in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk.
We work closely with the Trust to ensure those who they support have access to the care and information they need and offer regular training to the charity’s support teams so they can support people when they most need it.
