Video – How we help colleagues in need

Want to know how colleagues are supported by SBA The Solicitors’ Charity? Take a look at the video above. Here SBA’s very own Sue Ellis explains how fellow solicitors can benefit from reaching out to their profession’s charity.

Our solution is to help people with financial support and every year we disperse £1m to solicitors and their families in need.

The video is part of a wider joint campaign with The Law Society, the Solicitors Regulation Authority, LawCare and the Solicitors’ Assistance Scheme. The project, #SupportingSolicitors gives clear advice for solicitors of where to turn to during times of need. A flowchart graphic was designed to signpost people according to their needs. Likewise, a series of videos was published. These advise on the types of help that is available for solicitors from each organisation.

Launched during Mental Health Awareness Week, the campaign challenges the stigma of mental health within the legal profession. Read more via the Law Society Gazette.
