At CFG, we recognise as a firm the importance of giving something back, whether to the local community via fundraising or to those in need from the wider population as a whole.
This is why our purpose is – ‘To help those affected by injury – together’. This encompasses all people who have sustained an injury and not just those who have a personal injury claim.
Each year, our colleagues are invited to nominate and vote for a local charity they feel would benefit from our support from both a fundraising and volunteering perspective.
