Jacksons Law Firm has been working with the High Tide Foundation for a number of years and is proud to be a Corporate Partner of the charity.

The High Tide Foundation, which was founded in 2012, is an independent charity delivering meaningful work experience and career programmes to schools, colleges and young people in the Tees Valley.

Their programmes have provided unique and life-enriching experiences that help young people engage with employers, increase understanding, improve skills and raise aspirations.

There’s immense value in offering experience to young people in the area, to allow them to gain exposure to the legal sector and make informed decisions about their future careers.

Linking the curriculum with careers, the Foundation’s initiatives are open to all schools and colleges in the Tees Valley and are designed to integrate easily into a structured careers programme in-line with the national Gatsby careers framework.

Industry career workshops and work experience placements are booked in a range of lengths and themes, with the support from local business members like Jacksons. These inspiring and interactive placements connect young people with employers; opening the door to opportunities and providing a glimpse into a wide range of industries.

Over the years of working with the charity, our team have enjoyed engaging with the students on placements and often continue to provide career support and advice once placements have finished.

High Tide Foundation’s General Manager, Lauren Bywater, outlines the importance corporate support is to the charity:

“High Tide is so important to our community, we work with local students to provide the skills and knowledge of future careers so they can have the life they want. Over the past few years, it has become more difficult to secure charity funding and we solely rely on the financial contributions from our corporate partners. Without the generosity from Jacksons Law Firm, and other corporate supporters, our charity would not be able to supply the career education for our students.

“The support from Jacksons goes far beyond providing funding, they have provided hundreds of hours working with young people to share their career knowledge, inspire the students and break down barriers. Corporate funders are not just supporters; they are integral partners in our journey towards a better future for the young people of Tees Valley.”


High Tide have collated and released their Impact Report for last year which illustrates just how much work and how many young people have been engaged with their great work. If you would like to know more about the charity or get involved please visit their website
