Kingsley Napley had the pleasure of hosting an evening with Spark Inside. The charity coaches prisoners and advocates for change within the criminal justice system. Please read on to find out what we learnt and how you can help.
Pro bono is part of our DNA at Kingsley Napley. It is part of many fee earners’ weekly if not daily work. We have provided pro bono legal advice and services for several decades and it is now a cornerstone of the Responsible Business (RB) offering at the firm which I manage.
On 22 June, people will come together to celebrate what has now been called, “Windrush Day”. The day is being marked with celebrations around the country, which may well be a challenge given social distancing. However, as a quick reminder, this day is to mark the injustice and scandal that many people faced, predominantly from the Caribbean who, after being in the UK for more than 50 years were asked to leave the country.
During Carers Week 2020, we help to make caring visible by sharing voices of staff members at Kingsley Napley, who are either carers themselves or witness the effects of others being required to fulfil a carer’s role. Today, we share Claire Parry’s story about her brother, who has an Acquired Brain Injury, and the unsettling impact of the COVID-19 lockdown on his stability, routine and well-being as well as the challenges experienced by his family and carers.
