Thorneycroft Solicitors – a specialist brain injury law firm – is once again showing its support for carers by offering a free drop-in legal advice clinic as part of a major event on Thursday 11 June. Part of Carers Week (8-14 June 2015), the event takes place in The Great Hall, Manchester Town Hall, Albert Square, M60 2LA from 12 – 3.30pm. People are welcome to drop in for free, no obligation legal and practical advice to help them with their particular circumstances.
Thorneycoft Solicitors is a member of the Brain Injury Group (www.braininjurygroup.co.uk) which provides a gateway to specialist support services for people affected by brain injury and offers signposting to welfare and benefits advice, statutory funding advice, and specialist support groups where people can meet others in a similar situation.
“We appreciate that family members often have to step up to the challenge of caring for a brain injured loved one, and such an injury can present many different types of problem for the whole family,” says Mark Belfield, brain injury lawyer and director of Thorneycroft Solicitors, who will be available to take questions on the day. “The role of a carer is demanding, but often help is available,” he explains. “Whilst we may pursue a claim to secure funding for medical support, rehabilitation or home adaptations, we work in the best interests of the whole family and can advise carers about the opportunities that may be available to ease their physical and financial burden.”
Carers Week is an annual awareness week co-ordinated by Carers UK to recognise the contribution of the UK’s estimated 6.5million carers. Without support for themselves, those carers often face their health, financial and emotional problems themselves.
“We have worked with Thorneycroft Solicitors for several years, and like all our member firms they are inevitably involved with carers as well as those individuals suffering from a brain injury,” says Sally Dunscombe, co-founder and director of the Brain Injury Group. “Brain injuries can have a devastating effect on a family, and it’s vital that people receive the right legal advice and support services to help them manage the years ahead. Our members work hard to secure fair compensation to support carers in their work.”
