We are committed to active engagement in local, regional and international social and environmental stewardship. This focus is reflected in our direct engagement as a firm in charitable causes, including entities and programmes which support the arts, heritage preservation, the environment, sustainable development, youth development, education and the advancement of knowledge. We encourage civic participation and the undertaking of charitable projects by all of our employees. We are humbled by the number of opportunities afforded to us to contribute meaningfully to our society.
For many years, we have actively supported the Duke of Edinburgh's Award for Young People both locally and internationally, and Sir Trevor is a past International Trustee of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. We also participate in the United World Colleges scholarship programme offering students the opportunity to pursue advanced tertiary education outside of Barbados.
Sir Trevor Carmichael was the founder and first Chairman of the Barbados Youth Business Trust, and a past President of the Barbados National Trust. For the past twenty-three years, Sir Trevor has been the President of the Barbados Museum and Historical Society, and is also a major individual contributor to arts and film. Partner Andrew Ferreira is a trustee of the Barbados Environmental Conservation Trust, as well as the founder of the local Agnus Dei charity which provides tertiary education bursaries, and welfare support for the disadvantaged. Partner Giles Carmichael is a Trustee of More 4 Kids, Barbados’ premier trust dealing with children experiencing autism, and is a trustee and member of the steering committee of the Barbados Environmental Conservation Trust. These contributions are complemented by the myriad examples of community development of all employees of whose efforts we remain immensely proud.
