Support for Members

 

The Solicitors' Charity

 

The Solicitors’ Charity has been supporting solicitors at times of need or crisis since 1858.

When times are hard, we provide financial, emotional and practical support to help people get back on track. We aim to make a permanent and   positive impact on the lives of the people that we help. We may have been known by a few different names in our history (The Solicitors’ Benevolent Association and SBA being the most recent) but our purpose has never changed.

The Solicitor’s Assistance Scheme offers free confidential help, advice and guidance to all solicitors in England and Wales, their families and employees on any problems whether personal or professional. 

The assistance is given by experienced solicitors who are themselves in practice and who have agreed to share their knowledge and expertise by providing initial help.

There are lots of online information sessions dealing with practical issues around Covid-19. The Law Society, for example, is holding various seminars and, closer to home, Legal News has an interesting schedule (many in conjunction with the Law Society office in Cardiff). I will continue to pass on these details for you and other specific updates which may be of assistance. Most of these events are free of charge and some are specifically designed to release the isolation of working from home/at a distance which is a new experience for many of us.

 

Although we are unable to operate in a normal fashion, the society is still here for you. Email updates will continue and you can also follow us on twitter for more immediate content @SwanseaLaw_Soc 

 

If you have any issues that you would like to raise with the Law Society then please let us know so that these can be referred to the Wales Office and/or our Council Member as appropriate.

 

Life (and our profession) may never look the same for us but we all can and will adapt. With this in mind we have parked our review of our Business Plan for now so that we can identify what will really help our members when we’re through the current restrictions.
