In recognition of Family Law in Partnership LLP and 4 Paper Buildings being named Family Law Firm of the Year and Family Law Chambers of the Year respectively in the Family Law Awards 2011, we are proud to announce our support for a kidspace. a kidspace is a social enterprise which provides a child centred support service for children who are experiencing family breakdown. a kidspace runs workshops specifically designed for children using innovative and therapeutic activities to encourage children to express their feelings as they adjust to their new situation.
Family Law in Partnership LLP and 4 Paper Buildings will provide funding to a kidspace enabling subsidised places to be offered to children who might not otherwise be in a position to take advantage of the expertise of a kidspace.
Gillian Bishop, a founding partner of Family Law in Partnership LLP, commented: "We are delighted to support a kidspace an organisation which, like Family Law in Partnership, is passionate about providing every possible help to children who experience a family breakdown. The Family Justice Review highlighted the need for the family justice system to provide more support for children affected by family breakdown and the innovative work of a kidspace provides exactly that. This service complements the Parenting After Parting workshops that we run at Family Law in Partnership which encourage parents to place their children’s needs at the heart of their decision making process when undergoing a divorce or separation. We are very pleased to be able to help more children to access the inspirational services offered by a kidspace."
Jonathan Cohen QC, Head of Chambers at 4 Paper Buildings, noted: "As the largest family law set in England and Wales, 4 Paper Buildings are committed to giving something back to the family justice system. We are therefore proud to support a kidspace and the help they provide to children whose parents have separated by sponsoring more children to access their unique, pioneering and child focussed service."
Emma Cohn and Stacey Hart, founders of a kidspace, responded: "We are absolutely delighted to have the support of Family Law in Partnership and 4 Paper Buildings. We believe that every child has the right to access support through family breakdown and we hope that other like minded businesses will follow their lead and support a kidspace in order to make this possible. We would like to thank Family Law in Partnership and 4 Paper Buildings for believing in our vision and enabling us to support children who are often left to cope alone through what can be a traumatic and life changing event."
