Our Impact

We don’t just talk about our passion for social impact, we live it. Prime Advocates is a registered not-for-profit law firm, which means all our profits are reinvested into our impact programmes. The goal of our programmes is to help social enterprises flourish, in the UK and around the world.

Using our legal and financial acumen we run a business accelerator for female founders and a pro bono scheme for social enterprises and law firms. We have also developed an education network to teach students about social entrepreneurship and are developing a transformative vocational school in Ghana to improve female unemployment and the garment industry - See below.

 

Prime Advocates Impact Programmes are funded in part by the Prime Advocates Foundation, a restricted fund operating under the auspices of Prism the Gift Fund, Registered Charity Number: 1099682. If you would like to donate to our impact programmes work, please click the link below!
