Helping the NHS to Help Us: Going Vegan?

Many people have chosen to reduce the amount of meat or animal products in their diets for a number of reasons; including health, environmental and ethical.

Whatever your stance on the subject, it is worth considering what the impact of such diet changes could have on our over-stretched NHS, which sees millions of avoidable diet-related cases every day.

11 million deaths per year are caused by diet-related diseases.

Veganism has been one of the fastest moving โ€˜trendsโ€™ over the last few years. The topic has been hotly debated online, well covered in the press, endorsed by countless celebrities and has seen a surge of new plant-based food lines, businesses, shops and restaurants. The amount of people turning ...

Making Preparations for the New Year

If 2019 is the year you get married there will lots of excitement and planning. Sometimes the more practical preparations get overlooked.

You may want to explore the benefits of making a Pre-Nuptial Agreement with your partner. Not the most romantic of conversations, but a useful tool to protect yourself or any assets should the relationship break down in the future.

One of our Solicitors will be happy to run through the process - 01256 844888.

With the start of a New Year, it is a tradition to make resolutions and plans for the forthcoming year. If this is the year when you and your partner are going to get married, there are lots of exciting times ahead and sometimes the more practical preparations get overlooked.

How to Tell Your Children about Divorce: An Age Appropriate Guide

Breaking the news of separation or divorce to your children is not an easy conversation to have. Our Family Lawyers provide a few pointers that may help, along with a guide of how to approach this talk with different aged children...

We are supporting Resolution's 'Good Divorce Week' campaign and this year the theme is minimising the impact of conflict on children. This week we are offering a free 'Tea & Talk' every lunchtime at our offices (no need to book) and we are also sharing relevant articles online which we hope will help parents going through a separation.

For further information please get in touch with Julia in our friendly Family Team on 01256 305596.

For parents, telling your children that you are separating or getting divorced can be a rather upsetting and painful conversation. As adults you are likely to have been unhappy for some time or been on a journey through your separation, but for the children it may come as a complete surprise.

Losing A Loved One: Practical Starting Points

Coping with the loss of a loved one is hard enough, let alone with the added pressure of dealing with the paperwork and administration of their estate.

Our Probate Lawyers have put together a quick guide to the first steps you must take when someone passes away as many people do not know where to turn.

When a friend or family member passes away it is a very difficult and upsetting time. The loss of a loved one can be particularly overwhelming if you also have to deal with all the paperwork and administration of the death alongside your grieving.

What You Need To Know About Civil Partnerships

Last week Teresa May announced that Civil Partnerships would be available to all couples in England and Wales, not just limited to same-sex relationships.

But what is the difference between a marriage and a civil partnership and is it worth considering if you live with your partner but are not intending to marry?

Laura Bell from our Family Team explains....

Following from the news in June that the Civil Partnership Act 2004 was deemed by the Supreme Court to be incompatible with human rights law, Teresa May has now announced last week that all couples in England and Wales will be able to choose to enter into a civil partnership rather than marriage.

Today is World Mental Health Day (10 October 2018) and a good opportunity to reflect on how you could help support your staff or colleagues who may be suffering from mental health issues in the workplace.

There are many resources out there to give you inspiration, such as appointing a 'mental health first aider' or organising 'coffee & chat' mornings. You could list helpful text services or websites on your staff intranet or simply review your policies to check that you are compliant with employment law.

Today's message is "It's OK to talk" so ensure that you have an open-door policy when it comes to staff being able discuss problems with management and consider training your managers if they are unsure on how to manage these issues.

Helping the NHS to Help You: Get Up and Move!

Our NHS is constantly under pressure with threats to funding, lack of staff and an ageing population. Unfortunately with more strains more mistakes are likely to be made.

We can all do our bit to lessen the pressure by keeping ourselves fit and healthy. Do you know how much physical exercise is recommended each week? ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŠโ€โ™‚๏ธ

The NHS is an amazing benefit for us and most of us are grateful for the assistance that we have received from it. It is however at a critical stage as people are living to be older and funding is at risk. We can all do our bit to stay healthy so that we can lessen the pressure on the NHS.

Most Popular Day for Marriages: The Common-Law Marriage Myth

Did you know that Saturday 18 August is the most popular date for weddings in the UK this year?

Coinciding with this date is a campaign to raise awareness on the common-law marriage myth.

Many couples believe that because they have lived together for many years, or have children together that they would automatically have certain legal rights if the relationship was to break down. However, this isn't necessarily the case.

There are ways of getting peace of mind though. So if you aren't considering marriage but want to protect your financial interests then please get in touch...

However, since the early 1970โ€™s the number of people actually getting married has steadily decreased, dropping a further 3.4% last year. There have been many theories about why marriage rates are falling, but regardless the fact remains that fewer people are formalising their relationship.
