Freeths LLP Derby Clinical Negligence Solicitors are proud sponsors of local disability charity, Umbrella. Umbrella supports families living in Derby and surrounding areas such as the Amber Valley and the South Derbyshire Dales. The charity supports children and young adults between the ages of 5 and 30 with a wide variety of special needs including behavioural, physical and sensory needs.

As part of its fundraising activities, Umbrella hosted a SEN Marketplace event today (11 October 2018) at the Broadway Baptist Church Derby. It was a great opportunity to spread the word of their vital work and to meet local service providers. Over 30 stalls from a variety of local organisations attended to share information about their services including; Nimbus Disability who offers a disability access card, Derbyshire Parent Carer Voice, Derbyshire Information Advice & Support Service for SEND, The Family Fund, Autism Champions, Q Club, The Workshop and many more.

Karen Reynolds, Claire Cooper, Naomi Solomon of the Freeths Derby and Stoke Clinical Negligence team, and Melanie Williams of the Oxford Court of Protection team presented our jungle themed stall at this event complete with branded sweets and our sought after walking animal balloons! Over 150 people came through the doors and the Freeths stall was very popular.

Lisa Goulding also volunteered for Umbrella for the day assisting with setting up the event and making refreshments throughout the day, Umbrella were very grateful for our support. We had a great time at this fantastic event, and we met some wonderful local people and services.
