Press Release

One of Scotland’s largest independent law firms Morton Fraser is supporting Action for Children as its Charity Partner for 2022.

Action for Children's vision is that every child and young person has a safe and happy childhood, and the foundations they need to thrive.

Morton Fraser will be fundraising throughout the year to help support Action for Children in their work to provide practical and emotional care and support for children and young people in Scotland. Morton Fraser's fundraising will include taking part in the Kiltwalk, joining some of the great events organised by Action for Children, and the return of office bake sales! Morton Fraser will also be volunteering at Action for Children's events and projects in both Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Chair of Morton Fraser, Jenny Dickson, said: "We are delighted to be supporting Action for Children.  In Scotland, their work includes supporting families, helping young people get into employment and providing foster care.  We are looking forward to playing our part in their work and to learning more about the impact Action for Children has on the lives of young people and their families."

Paul Carberry, Action for Children’s Director for Scotland, said: “We are grateful for Morton Fraser choosing to support Action for Children. We know this year will be especially difficult for the most vulnerable as the cost of living crisis escalates and pushes more families below the poverty line. At Action for Children, we take a holistic approach to addressing the many issues faced by children, families and young people and through our partnership with Morton Fraser, we will be able to increase our support to those who need it most.”

Morton Fraser is excited to be working with Action for Children in 2022 and are looking forward to kicking off fundraising efforts. This continues Morton Fraser's history of supporting children's charities including Children 1st, Sick Kids Friends Foundation Edinburgh and Ronald McDonald House Glasgow.
