ARC Cancer Support Centres
Our Dublin office initiated its first partnership with ARC Cancer Support Centres. ARC's mission is to provide psychological, emotional, practical, and educational support to people living with cancer and those who care for them. They do this through a warm, welcoming, and client centre approach, whilst ensuring that everyone in Ireland is aware of, and able to access these services.
Tracy Power, Fundraising Manager at ARC, said “we are proud and grateful to be selected as charity partner by Fieldfisher. All our services are completely free of charge. It’s because of the generous support of Fieldfisher, that we can continue to maintain the free services at ARC for people living with cancer and those who care for them.”
Children have a voice that demands to be heard but, for many, this voice is muffled by cultural, social, and economic barriers. Our staff and partners engage in a Reading Partners scheme, working with pupils, many of whom do not have English as their first language, at a local primary school to improve their literacy skills and boost their confidence. Exposure to the corporate world at such a young age allows children to raise aspirations, think beyond their own experiences, and open their eyes to new perspectives.

Paris are partnered with Main Dans la Main et Solidaires, whose purpose is to improve the quality of life of children and their loved ones in hospitals. They offer moral support for children and their families, and financially fund improvements at hospital wards to enable comfort to what usually is a daunting environment.
