As national family week gets underway, facilities for children in Huddersfield have received vital funding thanks to a £500 donation from a group of local lawyers.
The local group of the family lawyers' association Resolution has donated the funds to the Huddersfield Children's Centre on New North Parade to help fund supervised contact sessions for children whose parents have separated.
"As we celebrate national family week, it's important to remember that the end of a relationship doesn't have to result in the breakdown of a family," says Rachel Spencer Robb, of Resolution West and North Yorkshire, which represents over 300 lawyers in the region.
"The child contact service at the National Children's Centre provides a safe, friendly and neutral place where children of separated families can spend time with one or both parents and we wanted to show our appreciation for the vital service that the centre provides to the local community."
Resolution is also marking national family week with the launch of a new online advice centre with information on the legal aspects of splitting up, as well as advice on parenting apart, sorting out money and arranging child maintenance. The advice centre is available via Resolution's website at www.resolution.org.uk/advice_centre.
Resolution solicitors specialise in family law issues and follow a code of practice that promotes co-operation between parents following divorce or separation. There are over 5500 Resolution members nationally.
