Merseyside legal partners support disabled charity at FREE Northwest exhibition

HAMPSON Hughes Solicitors and Cassell Moore, 2 leading law firms based in Liverpool, have teamed up with Caudwell Children, the national charity that provides practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families, to inform parents of a range of specialist services that they can access through the charity's Family Services programme. The legal partners, who both provide expertise to the parents of children affected by catastrophic injury and accidents, and Caudwell Children, are supporting the charity in the delivery of a programme of seminars at this year's Kidz up North exhibition at:- EventCity, Barton Dock Road, Manchester, M17 8AS.

It is free to members of the public and will give visitors the opportunity to receive advice and information on a variety of disability related issues including:- mobility equipment, housing, education, employment, legal matters, wellbeing, access to sport, therapies, treatments and holidays. Julia Hayne, Head of Community Programmes at Caudwell Children, is delighted by the collaboration. She said:- "As part of our legal partnership with the firms, which sees them supporting our Family Services programme across England and Wales, we are facilitating an informative programme of seminars. Many parents of disabled children tell us that they simply don't know who to turn to when faced by the many complex issues around disability. However, the seminars, which include sessions as diverse as how to deal with challenging behaviour, to helping teenagers with Autism Spectrum Disorder at school, will show parents how to access the support that they so desperately need. The seminars will be invaluable to parents and carers and will cover some key areas, such as how to manage personal budgets, transition into adulthood and independent living."

The support of Hampson Hughes and Cassell Moore will also enable Caudwell Children to join over 50 exhibitors at this year's event, allowing them to explain to visitors the full range of their services.  As Julia explained:- "The stand will be manned by our experienced Family Services team. They will give visitors the chance to test sensory equipment, experience a specialist therapy tricycle and complete application forms for a range of equipment, therapies and treatments. I would urge anyone attending the event to visit the team on Stand C17."

Representatives from Hampson Hughes and Cassell Moore will also be on the stand to discuss legal matters.  Last year's event was attended by 3,500 parents and healthcare professionals from across the Northwest. To find out more about the FREE seminars visit:- DisabledLiving.Co.UK.

Embracing Progress - National Photo Competition Aims To Inspire People Living With Disabilities

A national photo competition has been launched by Manchester law firm Irwin Mitchell and an armed Forces charity, to raise awareness of how disabled people can achieve their goals by sharing inspiring stories of personal achievement.  Irwin Mitchell and charity Walking With The Wounded have joined forces to launch Embracing Progress, an online photography competition which aims to demonstrate that every disabled person has the right to live their life, embrace their disability and achieve their goals no matter how big or small. Entries are being invited which show how disabled people can overcome the challenges in their lives to achieve their full potential and promote independent living. Each image will be judged on its individual merit rather than the standard of photography technique as the competition is open to people of all abilities and ages with different categories open to entrants. iPads will be awarded to the winners from each category while the overall winner will also receive £300 of Amazon vouchers.  Law firm Irwin Mitchell helps many victims of injury and illness to get their lives back on track with specialist help, support and rehabilitation. Stuart Henderson, Managing Partner of the personal injury team at Irwin Mitchell, said:- "With Embracing Progress we are looking for an attention grabbing image that is positive, empowering and demonstrates that every disabled person has the right to live their life and work towards their goals regardless of how big or small they may be. Everyone faces challenges in their lives and this competition is about the personal perceptions of what progress means to each individual.  Many disabled people are able to overcome the odds and reach remarkable milestones in their lives and Embracing Progress is about sharing their stories and images to inspire others to believe that they too can achieve their goals."

Walking With The Wounded supports veterans with physical, mental or social injuries on their journey to long term security, independence and employment.  Ed Parker, Co-founder and CEO of Walking With The Wounded, said:- "The men and women we support look to their future with great determination and courage, despite their injuries and are a positive example to anyone living with a disability.  This competition is about showcasing remarkable stories of success by both veterans and civilians to inspire others in a similar position."

The Embracing Progress competition closes for entries at midnight on 22 November 2015 with winners announced on the Irwin Mitchell website in December 2015. For more information including the full terms and conditions, and to enter please click on this LINK.
