Corporate Social Responsibility


At Darwin Gray, it is central to our ethos to look beyond the immediate day-to-day scope of our work. We work hard, but we also take the issue of balancing our work and lives seriously. We believe a healthy approach is beneficial to the firm, our employees, and as a result our clients. That means we actively pursue family-friendly policies and we encourage our staff to take time out and enjoy themselves.



In October 2017, over 120 of our clients and friends joined us at the Cornerstone for our biannual Autumn event. A fantastic evening was had by all, with entertaining anecdotes with Eddie Butler and Carolyn Hitt and music from Sinfonia Cymru percussionist Diogo Gomes.

Darwin Gray is proud to be the first Welsh law firm to be accredited as a Living Wage employer by The Living Wage Foundation, as of 1 July 2017.

This commitment will see everyone working at Darwin Gray, regardless of whether they are direct employees or third-party contracted staff, receive a minimum hourly wage of £8.45 which is significantly higher than the statutory minimum for over 25s of £7.50 per hour (the National Living Wage) introduced in April 2017.

The real Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. The Living Wage is calculated according to the real costs of living.




Darwin Gray is a proud partner of the Wales HR Network, offering HR professionals a network where they can benefit from access to informative and topical seminars, events and workshops across the country. The network includes all levels of HR professionals, including directors, managers, assistants and consultants.

Across the network's website and social media platforms, we offer a forum to share and discuss current news, issues and updates. The annual Wales HR Awards are held to recognise and celebrate HR excellence in different sectors across Wales.

The first Wales HR Awards took place 23rd March 2017 at The SSE Swalec in Cardiff. Over 330 HR professionals were treated to an evening of entertainment from Only Boys Aloud and WNO Youth Opera, as well as a short talk on employee engagement from guest speaker Lord Price, Minister of State for International Trade.

The 12 award categories included HR Team of the Year, Housing Associaton HR Professional of the Year and Best Use of the Welsh Language in HR.

In September 2015, we held our annual summer event to launch our new website at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

On top of actively promoting equality, diversity, and sustainability, we are always looking for ways to engage more directly with the community in South Wales. We believe that little things can make a difference to our community and the people in it. Here are some of the ways in which we at Darwin Gray are working to make that difference.
