Today’s Family Lawyer is pleased to confirm that Support Through Court has come onboard as the official Charity Partner of the publication.
Support Through Court is a charity dedicated to providing free, independent assistance to people facing proceedings without legal representation.
Moving forwards, their work and initiatives will be supported by the Today’s Family Lawyer publication as well as its events programme, beginning with its upcoming Cohabitation Conference in Manchester on 27th February.
Support Through Court’s Interim CEO Emma Taylor said the charity was “delighted” to be partnering with the publication:
“By reaching more people, we’ll be able to help support even more people facing court alone. We ensure those facing court alone can represent themselves with dignity, supporting them so they have the fairest possible hearing.
With over 60% of cases in the family courts, partnering with Today’s Family Lawyer is a particularly good fit as, together, we can highlight the impact that going through court has on those unable to access legal aid, as well as sharing the stories and successes of some of the litigants we work alongside. I look forward to working with Today’s Family Lawyer in the year ahead.”
One of the core values we have in Today’s Media is using our voice to champion good causes,” said David Opie, Managing Director of Today’s Media, publishers of Today’s Family Lawyer. He continued:
“We recognise that our publications have a responsibility to showcase the incredible work of charities up and down the country.
The work of Support Through Courts chimes with Today’s Family Lawyer and our family practitioner readership. Without their invaluable work many individuals in the family courts would be left without the advice and representation that they need so dearly,
We are grateful for the opportunity to use our position to help drive positive change and look forward to sharing their wonderful work with our readers and network.”
