Giving back to society.
Social responsibility is a vast area covering many activities. The one common denominator is that they are all about, and affect people.
Our social responsibility activities are directed at people outside our own business. We support activities financially and contribute with our skills, commitment and services. Being involved and contributing is personally rewarding. Helping others has a positive effect on all of us.
Contributions that develop our society
We work pro bono for organizations such as Doctors Without Borders, 1825 and Humanium Metal by IM.
1825 is a therapy center for young adults working to promote mental health and reduce mental illness among young adults at both societal and individual levels. 1825 has a therapy clinic where people aged from 18 to 25 years old, and experience a need for support, can come without a medical referral. 1825 is also active in knowledge development and exercising influence so that all young adults experiencing mental illness will have access to support and treatment adapted to their terms. Delphi works pro bono for 1825 in the form of board work and in connection with all law issues related to the business.
Humanium Metal by IM is a creative initiative where seized illegal firearms are destroyed and transformed into metal, which is sold to producers of peaceful products. The returns are channeled back to societies that are heavily infested by gun violence. A peaceful society is a fundamental enabler of sustainable development. The process of melting the firearms and the use of the resulting metal requires legal competence, which Delphi offers IM through our co-operation.
The purpose of Idrottshjälpen (The Athletic Help) is to help the 186 000 children in Sweden living in a family with a low income standard to start or continue with their sports activity. Despite our country’s multitude of sports organizations and enthusiasts, a common barrier to entry is the family’s private finances. Delphi supports Idrottshjälpen financially to provide more parents with the funds needed to pay for tuition and gear.
Community engagement inspires and makes a significant difference
Delphi takes an active role in initiatives that increase diversity, both in the legal profession and amongst applicants for legal education. This, we believe, will contribute to a more diversified workplace in the long run.
We are involved in the network NU: Nolla Utanförskapet (No alienation), where we offer high school kids help with their studies. They are welcome to our office for assisted help with homework and preparations for exams.
Delphi is a partner in the F1RST community. We invite talented students from schools in vulnerable areas and introduce them to the legal profession and law school. The goal is to inspire these students to aim for higher education and hopefully choose legal studies.
