Thompsons' clients receive practical and emotional support from a number of Scottish charities.

These organisations provide vitally important services for people who have suffered as a result of accidents, abuse, and discrimination, and they strive to protect future generations from suffering in the same ways.

We are proud to work alongside a number of leading charities.

 Show Racism the Red CardShow Racism the Red Card

As the UK's leading anti-racism educational charity, Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) provides workshops, training sessions and a host of resources to help tackle racism across society.

In the 1990s, professional footballer Shaka Hislop suffered racist abuse but realised his status as a footballing role model provided him with a platform to begin educating those around him and across wider society.

At Thompsons we are proud to be actively engaged in fighting discrimination and alongside our work supporting SRtRC, we work with the Scotland Professional Footballers' Union.
