Manx Workshop for the Disabled
Each year Simcocks adopts one particular charity to support for 12 months. The aim is to make a significant contribution to an organisation that will impact on Isle of Man life. It is the company’s workforce who nominate and subsequently vote for each group we support. Employees work together to raise money through a variety of ways including organising sponsored walks, cake baking, and holding dress-down days.
For 2018 staff voted to support the Manx Workshop for the Disabled. This charitable non-profit organisation works with people with disabilities on the Isle of Man to enable them to realize their full potential. Visit their website to find out more about their outstanding work.
In previous years Simcocks Advocates has supported:
Supporting the community
Sports coaches, youth mentors, active members of professional organisations and unpaid fundraisers all work for Simcocks. The organisations they work with may be diverse and varied but our staff share one thing in common – a commitment to the community in which they live and work.
We currently sponsor the following organisations :
- Red Eagles Netball Team
- Douglas Rugby Club
- Castletown Golf Club
Scores of schoolchildren and undergraduates have gained an invaluable insight into life inside a law practice after taking part in Simcocks’ extensive work experience programme. Youngsters aged 15 and older, studying at schools across the Isle of Man and at colleges and universities in the UK, have benefited from the company’s work experience programme. Spending a week at our Isle of Man law firm, students have the opportunity to work alongside lawyers and support staff in different departments.
