Australia: Clyde & Co is delighted to partner with domestic violence women's charity Broken to Brilliant to facilitate the publication of its new book 'Shattered to Shining'. Broken to Brilliant aims to assist and empower domestic violence survivors to mentor fellow survivors in their recovery following instances of domestic violence.
In addition to providing Broken to Brilliant with Pro Bono advice, Clyde & Co has raised funds for the Give A Book campaign for distribution to women's shelters in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth, to assist survivors of domestic abuse in rebuilding their lives.
Marcus O'Brien, Clyde & Co's Australian Pro Bono Partner commented:
"As a global firm we take our responsibility to be good corporate citizens seriously. Clyde & Co's Pro Bono program provides our staff with a meaningful and practical way to give back to the community and support causes about which they are passionate. As part of our International Women's Day activities, it was great to raise funds for Broken to Brilliant and provide Pro Bono legal support. Any funds raised through book sales can be invested back into the important work undertaken by the charity. It has also been very fulfilling to partner with Broken to Brilliant on its journey to publishing the next book in its series, which seeks to support survivors of domestic violence".
Kate Smith, Founding Director of Broken to Brilliant, said:
"Broken to Brilliant’s goal is to reduce the long-term impact of domestic violence by increasing financial independence, decreasing distress and increasing opportunities for survivors through education, life-skills training, and social support networks. A key activity of our charity is releasing books which share survivor's stories, together with messages of hope and resilience. We are incredibly grateful for the Pro Bono and financial support provided by Clyde & Co and look forward to continuing our important work with victims of domestic violence".
