TPO celebrates Pro Bono Week

Date:

This week (6 to 10 November) marks the 22nd annual Pro Bono Week which gives The Pensions Ombudsman (TPO) an opportunity to recognise and thank its volunteers from the legal profession. 

TPO has a volunteer network of around 200 pension professionals from a range of backgrounds including the legal profession and their contribution to resolving pension complaints is vital. Without their help and dedication, TPO would not be able to resolve as many disputes or help as many customers. 

Dominic Harris, Pensions Ombudsman, said:

"I'm delighted that TPO is able to get involved in Pro Bono Week this year. One of the themes this year is 'Changing lives through Pro Bono' which is exactly what our volunteers do for people. If you are a pensions lawyer wanting to give something back volunteering for TPO could be the answer. Not only will you be able to use your skills to really make a difference to people's lives but it can also make you a better lawyer as you gain a new perspective on dealing with individual members' complaints."
