New Year’s Resolution Ideas for Solicitors

Imagine a world where solicitors are there for each other when life goes off the rails. A world where your fellow colleagues have a safety net to support them financially and emotionally. Thanks to the kindness of hundreds of legal professionals across England and Wales, this continues to be a reality.

If this sounds like the profession you enjoy being part of, get involved with SBA The Solicitors’ Charity. After all, now is the time to turn over a new leaf. Here are some ways to give back to your profession as New Year’s resolutions for 2020.


1: Volunteer

Giving your time is a rewarding way to make a difference. Whether it’s visiting our beneficiaries or representing us at events, you can be part of something life-changing for people trying to get back on their feet.


2: Donate

Give generously this year to those who deserve it most. Your kindness can help fund the recovery of colleagues experiencing poverty and emotional hardship.


3: Give unclaimed client balances

Looking to offload those unwanted residual client balances? We can help. Whether it’s pennies or pounds, your unclaimed balances can fund support for people who need it the most. Full indemnities given with every donation.

4: Leave a gift in your will

Continue to turn peoples’ lives around by leaving a legacy for fellow solicitors when they are
overcoming crisis.


5: Fundraise

Fundraising activities can make an impact and have some real fun in the process. Need inspiration? Why not raise money at a fun run or organise an office bake off?

Feeling inspired? Let’s get 2020 off to a great start. Read more on how lawyers like yourself can find themselves in need or crisis:
