UKRAINE RESPONSE

**Updated 4th May 2022**

The gunnercooke foundation has a number of charity members who are dealing directly or who have links with organisations assisting people on the ground in Ukraine as the atrocities of war continue to unfold. 

We are also in the unique position of being supported by law firm gunnercooke and 300+ law firm partners, many of who have offered pro bono legal advice on areas from immigration to setting up new charities dealing with the conflict, many have registered to open their homes in addition to donating money and items needed by those fleeing Ukraine.

 

By continuing our work as the foundation; to connect the charity world with the corporate, and continue supporting our charity members, we will make a tangible  difference to those organisations who we are in touch with. 

If you know someone or an organisation who we can assist at this time please contact Laura Jones or Sarah Lynch.
