Marie Gallacher, Senior Associate and Accredited Mediator at our Wellingborough office will be providing a talk on mediation to the Team of Action for Children. This will take place at the Penrith Drive Children’s Centre on 24 August 2016 to raise awareness of the subject to the centre’s staff.
The presentation has been set up to answer a need for the Action for Children team to be more informed on what is available for families where a relationship has broken down. Marie will provide information on the entire mediation process and how people can find out if they qualify for Legal Aid.
Northants Family Law and Action for Children have worked together on previous projects. The firm of solicitors specialise in family law and are active fund raisers for the charity. Marie said: “We are holding a Family Fun Day at the Children’s Centre on 20 August 2016 to raise money for the charity. We have worked together on similar events, so providing the centre’s staff with information on our services seems like a natural extension to this.”
The charity, Action for Children help more than 300,000 children, young people and families every year across the UK. Their main areas of campaign work include family support, children in care, disabled children and vulnerable or excluded young people. We lead in providing services and campaigning for children, young people and their families in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
