The pro bono and community programme, which was formalised in 2009, has gone fr​om strength to strength and A Helping Hand 2011/2012 highlights just some of the work undertaken for charitable organisations in 2011 and early 2012.

The Pro b​ono and community committee, comprising six partners and three senior associates, oversees the programme which is targeted to achieve NZ$1 million per annum fee equivalent in pro bono legal services.

In 2011, a special focus of the programme was to extend the involvement of non-legal support staff, by offering support and resources to Bell Gully's pro bono partner organisations.
