Francis Clark LLP

Largest independent firm of chartered accountants in the South West

What we do:

Our main services are accounting, auditing, tax, corporate finance, business recovery, payroll and VAT.  Areas of expertise include agriculture, solicitors, medical, leisure & tourism, charities and education.  We also have a separate financial planning company.

Why we became a healthy workplace:

We wanted to bring together and build on all the good things that we were already doing. Working towards the Cornwall Healthy Workplace Award has enabled us to do this and we now have something that we can celebrate which recognises our achievement.  Over the years we have taken part in many activities and in 2012 Anthony Meehan set up our running club.  2015 has seen us set up our Health and Wellbeing programme.  This has included the creation of the role of Health & Wellbeing champion.  We now have 10 champions across the firm who have received training.  In addition, a new section on our Intranet dedicated to this area has enabled us to pull together everything that we have been doing in one place and to share this across our offices.
