Edward's Trust provides holistic family bereavement services supporting children, young people and parents across the West Midlands. They offer support to parents bereaved, or about to be bereaved, of their son or daughter - whatever the age of their child. They also provide support to children and young people of school age who are bereaved, or are about to be bereaved, of a parent, significant carer or sibling. A 'Wellbeing in Bereavement' service includes complementary therapies and respite bereavement care for bereaved parents and carers. The Trust also offers training and consultation for professionals working with bereaved families or families who are about to be bereaved. Our work with Edward's Trust includes:
- Easter Egg Hunt: Birmingham colleagues raised £180 in aid of Edward's Trust through organising an Easter egg hunt and a charity raffle.
- Bake sales and dress-down days: In the last year we raised £2,058 for our nominated office charities. We will continue to raise money for local charities through our various bake sales and dress down days
Birmingham Legal Advice Clinic
A number of our staff offer law training session to the Birmingham Legal Advice Clinic (BLAC). We are looking to host a session at our office for approximately 50 people.
Three of our Birmingham team are involved with tutoring for the Access Project. The Access Project provides one-to-one tuition to students in disadvantaged areas with the aim of improving their grades and helping them get into a top university.
We work with a number of schools in Birmingham. For example, one of our trainees conducted mock interviews with Year 12 students from Plantsbrook Secondary School in Sutton Coldfield. Solicitors also took part in a 'Guess my Job' activity with pupils from Handsworth Wood Girls' Academy, and offered practice interviews to pupils from Swanshurst School in Billesley. Previously we have also worked with Stanville Primary School and Archbishop Ilsley School.
Routes to Professions: Law Scheme
We participated in a work experience scheme run by the University of Birmingham called 'Routes to Professions: Law Scheme'. The programme is part of the University's commitment to improving access to courses and careers in law for under-represented students, and supports A-Level students in making decisions about a career in law and helps them through the application process. Five students spent one week rotating around all departments within our Birmingham office in order to gain experience of life in a law firm.
Our pro-bono legal support assisted Moseley Road Baths to obtain a licence to operate a Grade II listed swimming pool. The Moseley Road Baths were originally earmarked for closure by Birmingham City Council, but have now re-opened to provide a community asset running as a community business.
